Along with other partner organizations, we coordinate over 30 events along the whole length of the River from Santa Ysabel to the River Mouth. Each year, events such as wildflower hikes to the top of the River, bike rides to see community murals along the River, tours of the first San Diego Mission, and more draw thousands of San Diegans to the River. All events are free and family-friendly.

River Days 2019 will be here on May 11-19!

Thanks to our title sponsor Think Blue, this year's event will include opportunities to hike, bike, garden, and learn with activities for all ages. This year's schedule includes events along the River and watershed in Julian, Descanso, El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, San Diego and more! Event website will be launched soon with additional details. In the meantime, save the date!
