THANK YOU, FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR How can nature be saved now when we need it most? True, the lagoon is a protected ecological reserve. But our mission— as a community-supported nonprofit land trust—is all about connecting you and making nature better. You are the reason schoolchildren encourage their families to conserve resources and to enjoy being outdoors. Your support is the reason that sensitive species, such as saltmarsh birds and coastal marine layer-dependent plants, have a secure home in San Elijo Lagoon.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

Because of your support, we are enhancing the serenity of unspoiled nature for all generations. We invite you to continue and broaden your dedication for cleaner lands, water, and long and winding trails. Protecting the resilience of San Elijo Lagoon is my passion. It’s my goto-sanctuary and I’m reminded every time I run its trails. And I want this for our future. I encourage you to see through our children’s eyes the wonders of wetlands opening up—and how this generation will carry on our collaborative spirit of conservation, now and forever.

—Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

Sincerely,

Doug Gibson, Executive Director | Principal Scientist Doug Gibson at the State Capitol during Watershed Day, an annual symposium on the future of watershed restoration.

WILDLIFE HOTSPOT We all live in a watershed. Escondido Creek watershed begins in the headwaters in Bear Valley above Lake Wohlford. From here, the creek flows more than 26 miles to meet the coast at San Elijo Lagoon. The 979-acre San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve is an oasis of nature nestled in burgeoning north San Diego. It isn’t huge, when compared to vast swaths of protected lands and waters, such as Yosemite. But look closely. All around you is a rich fabric of microhabitats supporting more than 700 species of native plants and animals.

PATHS OF IMPACT Ready. Sweat. Go! More than 75,000 seekers of serenity, inspiration, and a good workout hit the trails in 2015—counted at Rios Avenue trailhead and the nature center.

Every accomplishment is inspired by you. Thank you for creating rising tides of positive change. Healthy Communities Wetlands provide a variety of ecosystem services. It’s why you’re drawn to love this place. They protect our coastlines, filter water, provide fish nurseries, jobs and recreation, and so much more. 

Discovering What’s Possible Students took pledges on field trips to conserve resources. Their conservation actions included watershed cleanups, creating educational videos and brochures and designing art murals made from recycled materials.

What a View As a land trust, we work to save open space. One of the biggest threats to land is people losing their connections with it. It’s why we’re partners together in the future of protected lands within urban settings.

A YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS We Saved This View Together

Because of your community-supported gifts, the coastal overlook will be restored.

The late Betty and George Harbaugh

Undeveloped coastal land is rare to save these days. Joseph Balla, a former Solana Beach resident, used to bring his kids to see sunsets from Harbaugh Seaside Trails (former Gateway property). Through years of watching construction story poles play out across the views, Joe always hoped it would stay natural. He bridged these wishes with

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2015 | Page 6

those of the late George and Betty Harbaugh, who had established a charitable foundation to give back to the betterment of our communities. On behalf of The George & Betty Harbaugh Charitable Foundation, Joe Balla’s $1.1 million gift secured the property, its new name, and its protected future.


A YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS Growing Future Stewards Eveny’s insightful remarks in our gala feature film, and live onstage at Birds of a Feather, gave a rising voice to youth leadership. Eveny visited the lagoon last spring on a field trip. This visit increased her connection to nature. She began to wonder how she could prevent so much trash from ending up in our watershed. As a freshman now, she’s a leader of her school’s ecology club and recently returned to the lagoon to share her knowledge with younger students. Your support for kids in nature creates leaders. Eveny thanks you—and so do we.

San Pasqual High School Ecology Club performs a Lorax play at Family Discovery Days (Eveny is 3rd from right).

Your gala participation raised more than $200,000 for conservation education, with special recognition to Presenting Chairs Carol Childs and Peter House.

CONSIDER A LASTING GIFT Join our Legacy Circle members who have generously included the conservancy in their estate plans. These are special gifts that support San Elijo Lagoon’s lands, waters, wildlife and personal enjoyment in perpetuity. San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2015 | Page 7


MORE THAN A FIELD TRIP Joshua is in elementary school. During his recent visit to the lagoon he learned about food chains in the reserve. He made the connection of how trash makes its way into the food chain. He declared he would go home and teach his little brother. His enthusiasm bubbled over. He wants “to teach the grownups that no longer remember” to recycle. Joshua is one of thousands of school children who explored the lagoon last year. The lagoon field trip allowed for real world application of lessons learned in the classroom. Each student took pledges to reduce, reuse, and recycle. It takes a community. Schoolteachers, parents, and our dedicated naturalists are leading these kids down the trail of life and expanding discovery.

Your generosity connects today’s children with love and care for our world.

Students learn about the impacts of trash in the food chain during trail and beach cleanups.

“I know I have some sort of impact on how garbage gets there, but I begin to think how I can prevent that.” –Eveny, High School freshman

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2015 | Page 8


MORE THAN A FIELD TRIP Welcome Back. Kids don’t come just once. The conservancy’s field trips are about making lasting connections with youth in nature. We work with partner schools whose students, especially in grades 3-5, engage in field trips multiple times, even in a single year. Repeated exposure to nature builds on concepts learned in the classroom and applied in real life through outdoor exploration. It’s more than a field trip. Students have expanded their conservation actions by hosting beach and trail cleanups. It’s encouraging that many students return with their families to experience seasonal family events together. Our curricula meets Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core State Standards by grade level.

Advanced Placement Environmental Science students explore their outdoor classroom.

More Than 7,000 Explorers School Field Trips

INSPIRE YOUR COMPANY’S SUPPORT Check to see if your employer matches charitable donations. Many large corporations encourage matching gifts.

SPROUTING COMMUNITY CONSERVATION The idea was grounded with a basic thought. What if we could source the native plants here and reduce our dependence on outside nurseries? With the initial “seed” investment placed by a donor, others joined in to create a native plant nursery in the reserve. Lagoon Platoon habitat restoration stewards helped create a plan. Volunteers built the shade structure and installed fencing. Construction on the shed was donated, as were cultivation tools. In late 2015 the nursery became operational. Welcome, dirty hands! Alongside staff biologists, volunteers collect seeds and nurture seedlings that replenish habitats throughout the reserve. This is the new way of habitat restoration, made possible by your gifts to restore the native diversity upon which wildlife depends. We’re saving transportation and nursery sourcing costs. We’re improving our carbon footprint.

Because of your gifts, volunteers of all ages can join together in community habitat conservation.

“This nursery will allow volunteers working with conservancy staff to maintain and enhance native plant populations in this important coastal ecological reserve.” —John Leonard, The John and Elizabeth Leonard Family Foundation San Elijo Nursery unveiling October 2015. By Bill Wechter San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2015 | Page 10


SPROUTING COMMUNITY CONSERVATION When you give to the conservancy, you’re also investing in future community leaders. Most Saturdays, you might not expect to see teens shoveling soil in the Great Outdoors. Meet Teen Volunteers in Action, an organization of young men in grades 7–12, who participate in community volunteer events. They sweat it out—installing native plants and removing non-native species. There’s no App for getting outside and breathing fresh air. Your gifts unplug us from our daily routines.

LOYAL LAGOON MONTHLY GIVING Your monthly tax-deductible gift helps ensure that we have dependable resources in response to urgent habitat concerns. An automatic monthly amount is the easiest way to give.

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2015 | Page 11


GIVING TO THE FUTURE Jim Dietz is a retired engineer. With time to give back to his passions, he graduated from our naturalist training two years ago. Early in training he took his nine-year old granddaughter out for a hike. She didn’t seem as interested in his “trivia facts” as she was in observing the world around her. Jim quickly realized that just providing information was not going to cut it. “You have to make sure to connect with the kids, guide them to make their own observations and discoveries, and always be enthusiastic and engaging,” said Jim. He’s often seen in the lagoon surrounded by eager students begging to stay longer on their field trips.

Jim and his granddaughter take a closer look at life in the lagoon.

Volunteers in service for community and nature contributed more than 5,355 hours, or a donation value of approximately $110,000.

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” —Rachel Carson, The Sense of Wonder
