Saturday, April 25, 9AM-12PM
Join us for a fun morning of community service on Saturday, April 23 from 9AM to 12PM. The San Elijo Hills Trail Committee will host our spring Trails Clean Up Day in cooperation with the ‘Creek to Bay Cleanup’ coordinated by I Love A Clean San Diego. You’ve never had so much fun doing something good.
Undeniably, one of our community’s greatest assets is the network of trails throughout San Elijo Hills and it’s something we all want to protect. The Trails Committee has partnered up with the I Love A Clean San Diego to make San Elijo Hills part of the event.
I Love A Clean San Diego provides supplies for the volunteers, manages registration and helps to promote the event. All you have to do is register online at www.creektobay.org. Search for “San Marcos – San Elijo Hills Trails” under North County. Then, on April 23 show up at the San Elijo Hills Town Square at 9AM and volunteers will give you directions. (If you can’t make the entire event, that’s fine – come for whatever amount of time you can contribute! The more the merrier!)
The committee always offers up great prizes and students get community service hours/credits for participating. Of course, this event is about more than just putting manpower on the trails to clean them up (although that’s a big part of it). The bigger vision is to foster a love and respect for taking care of our trails. By building awareness about trash and pet waste on the trails – taking part in cleaning it up – and understanding the impact of what we (and our pets) leave behind – we will set a precedent and inspire people of all ages to keep our trails clean in the first place!
Let’s make this event a huge success again this year! Join us on Saturday, April 23 in the Town Square at 9AM. Registration starts April 1. Go to www.creektobay.org and search for “San Marcos – San Elijo Hills Trails” under North County.
Now through April 30, 2016, I Love A Clean San Diego (ILACSD) will host its first Matching Campaign which aims to raise $25,000. Earlier this year, Charles and Gail Kendall, through their Family Donor Advised Fund at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, selected I ILACSD as the recipient of a $25,000 grant to build awareness and encourage environmental stewardship through San Diego County. Every dollar donated to ILACSD during March and April will be matched by this grant and will go twice as far to educate San Diego’s youth and energize volunteer cleanup efforts. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and can be made at CleanSD.org.
