Give today, make a difference for tomorrow

Help Create a Better Future for the River and Wildlife

Will you join with us with a donation of $10 or more?

Other Ways to Give

By donating at least $10, you will become a Friend of the River Park for one year. If you are already a Friend, thank you for "renewing" or making an "additional" gift.

If you prefer, you can also focus a gift on a specific need or program. Since that is a "restricted" gift it will only be used for that purpose. There are always many other opportunities to have an impact so if you don't see something of interest, please contact us and we would love to share some ideas.

INSTANT IMPACT: Small Amount = Big Impact

$2140 Left to Raise to repair Field Station on Boulder Creek.


COVID has taken its toll on our Fisherman's Camp Field Station on Boulder Creek. Volunteers haven't been able to organize like they should and our staffing has been reduced. Roof tiles need to be replaced, plant nursery needs to be repaired and fallen limbs need to be removed. Recently we were awarded a grant from the County of San Diego for new research equipment and other improvements, but before we do, we need to raise $2140 to complete the repairs. Learn More

Your gift of $10, $20 or more can help support this important work. Thank you!

Trash Free River Campaign

We have teams out 2-3 days a week recording locations of trash in and along the River. We share this data with land owners and agencies to work with them to organize clean-ups and to address sources. We organize our own cleanups 2-3 days per week, too.

The Campaign for Eagle Peak Ranch
We have acquired and maintain a wonderful valley near Julian. Wildlife is abundant and it is a great place to visit (when COVID19 allows). In the meantime, we have lots of work to do to maintain this 454 acre open space. We are working on restoring a damaged creek, enhancing trails, and making other improvements. We have set a goal of establishing a $100,000 fund to support these activities.
