As our climate continues to change, and sea levels steadily rise, restoring the San Elijo Lagoon’s health has become a critical step – both for the land itself and the native wildlife living there. This natural habitat includes threatened and endangered species. The goal of this event is to exchange and share ideas about the impact of climate change on fragile habitats such as the San Elijo Lagoon. We want to hear from a representative about the conservancy and community activism effort, all while enjoying a hike in the outdoors and maintaining social distancing guidelines.

Update:

Due to COVID-19 and San Diego County health order, the Fulbright Association San Diego chapter decided to record the hike and make it available for everyone to enjoy on virtual basis.
