Eagle Peak Ranch

Eagle Peak Ranch is a wonderful valley which includes Temescal Creek. Over several acquisitions the Ranch has grown to 454 acres. Different sections of the Ranch are known as Homestead, Gateway, Overlook and the Creek.

The property was acquired to conserve the valley and protect the Creek. The property contains the source of Temescal Creek which flows to the Upper San Diego River Gorge. The Ranch offers tremendous potential for recreation, education and research. If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please let us know!

Goldspotted Oak Borer (GSOB)
$2558 Raised to Develop Action Plan- Thank you!

The Ranch is suffering from a major invasion of the Goldspotted Oak Borer which is killing many of the ranch's beautiful live oaks. We are working to act fast. But due to the size of the infestation, we also must be very strategic to save as many oaks as we can.

We are partnering with the Natural Resources Conservation Service to develop a eradication plan. The next step is to hire a certified Forester to work with us to develop the Plan. NRCS has agreed to provide $4200 toward the project. We needed to raise the remaining $2558. Our tremendous thanks to all who responded to the call. Work has now started on the Plan!

By completing the Plan, we become elgible for grants to implement the plan.

If you would like to learn more and volunteer on this effort, please contact our River Ecosystem Manager, Shannon at 619-297-7380 or by email.

The Upper San Diego River is a key part of the San Diego River's ecosystem and so are tributaries such as Temescal Creek. It is consider one of the most biologically diverse areas in the entire Country.
