As one of the most biologically rich areas in the world, San
Diego provides tremendous opportunities to expose a diverse urban audience to
nature within their own backyard.
Working with partners, the SoCal Urban Wildlife Refuge Project has
extended its reach into neighboring communities to engage new audiences in
outdoor recreation, education, career development, and stewardship. Combining
our efforts the Living Coast Discovery Center, Earth Discovery Institute,
Zoological Society of San Diego and others, we are educating a diverse
community of students and teachers, and engaging the next generation of
conservation and nature enthusiasts who will ensure a future southern
California rich in wildlife and wild places.
