Our future is built together. In 2016 we surveyed you, our members, the community and ourselves and conducted planning workshops to explore and refine our direction for the next five years and beyond. You can review the results at SanElijo.org/StrategicPlan. The new strategic plan is a developmental milestone as we prepared for our 30th Anniversary year. The plan establishes direction, sets measurable objectives and timelines, and challenges the whole of the organization to strengthen our role as protectors of nature, builders of community and fiduciaries to those who invest in our mission. Thank you for your investment in the San Elijo Lagoon community.

THANK YOU, FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR The Long View In 2016 I celebrated 20 years with you. There are so many milestones: open land saved, our youth are practicing conservation actions and even an increase in endangered species here.

“Congratulations Doug! Thank you for all you do!”

What we accomplished last year opened pathways for an exciting 30th Anniversary. The California Coastal Commission issued the permit for the San Elijo Lagoon Restoration project, estimated to begin fall 2017. In our December celebration for Harbaugh Seaside Trails, we announced that the property loan had been fully repaid. We cut the ribbon to Annie’s Canyon Trail and continue to steward its natural resources through community conservation.

—Grant T., Facebook

We are adding agriculture in our services by securing 16 acres at the western Strawberry Fields off Manchester Avenue. Six acres will be conservancy-managed agricultural land holding our native nursery and 10 acres will remain in our protection as open space. You are the future and we invite your continued involvement. Join us at Birds of a Feather on October 7, our 30th Anniversary benefit and a North County coastal celebration for nature. I am humbled by the support you have given me (us) these past 29 years. Your passion, commitment and support to our mission and vision prevail. See you on the trails! With gratitude,

Doug Gibson, Executive Director | Principal Scientist

SAVING UNIQUE HABITATS Southern California Nonprofit Land Trust The greatest threat to the diversity of life is loss of habitat. As a land trust we acquire and protect lands in the watershed, managing habitats for resident animals such as bobcats, mule deer, Quino checkerspot butterflies, Belding’s Savannah Sparrows, Snowy Egrets, Silvery legless lizards, Striped shore crabs, halibut, and rare plant communities with beach sand verbena, sea dahlia, and all our fragrant sages—more than 1,000 species of native plants and animals. The conservancy owns more than 66 acres through fee-title ownership, and holds more than 70 acres of conservation easements on private and public property.

PATHS OF IMPACT Waggy Tails On Happy Trails Trails are here for you. From sunrise to sunset you enjoyed riparian shade, the glimpse of a rare salt marsh bird, or a good run with your dog in 2016.

Your membership supports the well-being of all of us who enjoy solace, natural inspiration and a great workout on the trails. Healthy Communities We need open lands for plants, animals and all of us. Protected lands provide a venue for outdoor recreation, which promotes social development and improves overall health and well-being.

INSPIRE YOUR COMPANY’S SUPPORT

We Are Connected Upstream and downstream everything we do is connected. Our field trips and events inspire both youth and adults about ways to make a difference for cleaner lands and waters.

Changing Climate We use predictions for sea level rise and more extreme weather events in our biological planning and habitat restoration actions. Youth are learning ways they can help in our school sciencebased curricula.

Check to see if your employer matches charitable donations. Many large corporations encourage matching gifts. San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy | Impact Report 2016 | Page 5


A YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS THE WILDEST STRETCH OF SAN ELIJO LAGOON Annie’s Canyon Trail It’s true: one person can make a huge difference. Her name is Annie and she envisioned the reopening of rare sandstone canyon caves and trails once off-limits and vandalized by graffiti and trash. With her donation to the conservancy, we set to work: Civilian Conservation Corps reshaped the loop trail. Our county and state partners joined in. Volunteers—hundreds of you—removed graffiti and installed native plants in preparation for the opening of Annie’s Canyon Trail on June 21, 2016.

“Fantastic that this land was saved.” —Gail W., Facebook

SUNSET VIEWS FOREVER Harbaugh Seaside Trails We did it! The property loan is fully repaid. When plans were revealed at an Open House, we received your invaluable comments and input. We now look forward to the restoration of this rare 3.4-acre coastal overlook and its native habitat enhancement, trails, a donor monument and viewing deck. Classic California sunsets will always be cherished here.

Thank You • Boy Scout Troop #713 and Eagle Scout Ajay Kumar • California Department of Fish & Wildlife • Civilian Conservation Corps • County of San Diego Department of Parks & Recreation • Eagle Creek • San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy Volunteers • Teen Volunteers In Action

“Annie’s Canyon Trail is amazing! Thank you, San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy! This would not have happened without you! Such a valuable organization. Tom and I are so proud to be a part of SELC.” —Stephanie W., Facebook

A YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS REVIVING YOUR WETLANDS San Elijo Lagoon Restoration Vital mudflat and salt marsh habitats will be restored. Habitat diversity will be enhanced in addition to new trail connections in the upcoming San Elijo Lagoon Restoration Project. This is a major collaboration that has grown the conservancy’s reach into historic realms. Lagoon Restoration is a component of The North Coast Corridor (Build NCC) highway, rail and environmental improvements, paid by TransNet, the regional half-cent sales tax for transportation. Lagoon restoration is expected to begin in fall 2017.

“The Conservancy just keeps growing in their service to our county and to visitors. A great example of a group working together to preserve a precious lagoon and its inhabitants and us. Go visit!” —Patricia A., Facebook

OUR LIVING WATERSHED

2,000 Students, Their Families & Teachers in Nature ESCONDIDO PARTNER SCHOOLS Central Elementary Farr Elementary Felicita Elementary Lincoln Elementary Pioneer Elementary Rincon Middle School San Pasqual High School

Our Living Watershed provides a pathway for positive experiences in nature and for enhancing environmental literacy. We nurture the confidence and skills necessary to inspire student leaders for conservation. This is done in unique ways. At Central Elementary we teamed up with fifth-graders to install a native plant garden at their school. In the sunshine and breezes of the morning students got their hands dirty installing 57 different plants. “I feel like a planting champion,” one girl shared, “I hope our garden attracts lots of butterflies!” We are leading the charge for inspiring a movement with real action in the lives of socioeconomically challenged youth in grades 3-12. When children connect with our natural world it benefits them personally, and in our communities with healthy life-long habits for a vibrant world.

Our curricula meets Next Generation Science and Common Core Standards

“Since I heard what straws do in the reserve I stopped using them. Because plastics harm sea animals, wild animals, street animals, and even our pets.” —Daisy L., 5th-grade Central Elementary

EVERYONE IN NATURE LOYAL LAGOON MONTHLY GIVING Your monthly tax-deductible gift helps ensure that we have dependable resources in response to urgent concerns.

After taking the Botany Sketching workshop it opened my eyes to plant details I’m going to look for when I hike.” —Mary O., Vista

NATURE & YOU Discovery Tours Family Discovery Days Family Fun Days Wildlife Walks School & College Field Trips Special Tours & Events Senior Tours Corporate Teambuilding

Is there nature in your day? We unveiled a new series of specialized events and tours, including the passions we share in yoga, botany sketching, hiking and craft brews, sunset tours, nighttime insects, planting events and family fun days. Nine-year old Reese toured the lagoon with her grandfather to take pictures for the #loveyourlagoon Photo Contest. They discovered new plant life, like sticky Lemonade berries. It captivated her and she submitted her photo. “The lagoon is an open area with lots of fresh air and a beautiful place to visit when you want to go on a walk,” shared Reese, who won in the youth division. Students across our North County region, including San Dieguito High, Grauer School and Solana Vista Elementary, are on the trails with us where we encourage curiosity and learning in nature. Love your lagoon and join us. Members receive discounts as a benefit for your support.

SPROUTING COMMUNITY CONSERVATION

First, a little seed gets placed into the soil. School children covered these seeds with their hands. Corporate members, including Eagle Creek and (W)right On Communications, moved these seedlings into larger pots. Perhaps you were one of a thousand volunteers who helped to install 3,000 coastal sage scrub and riparian plants cultivated from native species in the reserve. Our native plant nursery continues to inspire multigenerational learning and action. Equipped now with recycled water, it’s fully functioning with locally sourced seeds and cuttings from the reserve. Our goal next year is to propagate 70% of the plants used in habitat restoration.

LOVE PLANTS? Join us Wednesday mornings and 3rd Saturday mornings in our native plant nursery and out in the reserve to help in habitat restoration.

“However many acres you’ve restored, it is both too little and a heckuva lot, and a job well done!” —Eric S., Facebook


SPROUTING COMMUNITY CONSERVATION Dozens of volunteers built “sandcastles” for wildlife. This unique habitat enhancement event occurred last May on the east side of Coast Highway 101 in Cardiff. Volunteers spread sand, 25-pound bucket by bucket, to expand coastal dunes in the lagoon’s west basin using excess sand from the conservancy’s annual inlet excavation. With shovel in hand, Director Doug Gibson related to the volunteers that over time they’ll see the results of their efforts in vibrant dunes. Our work today connects us with a more natural future. We hope to support nesting sites for endangered California Least Terns and revitalize rare coastal strand habitat. From working with Eagle Scouts, to our high school mentees and college interns, we’re building the future of conservation together.

HOW DO YOU LOVE YOUR LAGOON?

“You wouldn’t know from the warm colors that it was windy and cold when I captured that springtime image on the westernmost trail. I waited until the final shards of sunlight had disappeared below the horizon and walked back to my car in chilled darkness.”—Terry R., People’s Choice Photo Contest

“@SanElijoLagoon thank you for sharing your wonderful world with us #hikingadventures.”

“Find both mystery & wonder along Annie's Trail at the @SanElijoLagoon Conservancy.”

“Spent a lovely afternoon at @SanElijoLagoon; so great to see an estuary so beloved by its community!” —Christina T, Twitter

“The students were able to notice the rattlesnake’s pattern and count the number of rattles. To see the nearly immediate conversion from fear to intrigue was hugely satisfying for me.”

“After reaching the end of his route, Norm talked about the changes he’s seen in the lagoon, primarily the restoration of natural habitats and removal of nonnative plants. ‘I guess I should join the conservancy,’ he said.”

—Susan E., Conservancy Naturalist
