The Escondido Creek Conservancy Invites You To Help Support Local Wildlife “Corridors”
The benefit to be held on land previously proposed for development The Escondido Creek Conservancy (Conservancy) invites the public to support North County’s imperiled wildlife at “Corridors,” a benefit on May 30th, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. Guests are invited to the George Sardina, MD Preserve in Escondido for hayride tours of the land, local beer and wine, acoustic music, delicious artisan pizza, and an intimate wildlife encounter. Early Bird ticket prices start at $125 per person and are available at escondidocreek.org/corridors. VIP pricing and corporate sponsorships are also available. All proceeds help continue the Conservancy’s conservation and education programs in North County San Diego.
This outdoor event takes place on George Sardina, MD Preserve, which was protected in 2019 as part of the Conservancy’s highly successful Save 1000 Acres campaign to help create permanent wildlife corridors for mule deer, mountain lions, and other wildlife. The 282-acre parcel was previously proposed for development and has been heavily impacted by prior uses. This is a unique opportunity to see a property in the beginning stages of habitat restoration and talk to local wildlife experts about the importance of conservation.
Guests at “Corridors” will hear from its non-profit partner Lumbercycle about how the Conservancy is recycling non-native trees to help fight climate change, and they will meet rescued birds of prey from Sky Hunters. The Mountain Lion Foundation and a UC Davis field scientist will also be present to discuss how the Conservancy’s work supports the research underway on mountain lion populations in Southern California—which are at risk of local extinction.
The Conservancy encourages the community to share their passion for this work and invite family, friends, and neighbors to support the Conservancy’s work, which has helped protect over 8,000 acres from development and provides outdoor education to every third grader in the Escondido Unified School District.
