Our Story

WE ENVISION A COMMUNITY WORKING TOGETHER TO PROTECT AND ENHANCE THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT THROUGHOUT SAN DIEGO THROUGH EDUCATION, ADVOCACY AND DIRECT ACTION.

To promote healthy natural systems in San Diego by inspiring a deeper understanding and appreciation of positive environmental change and advocacy while working to improve the quality of life and economic vitality of our community.

Increasingly, Mother Nature needs representation. Someone has to stand up for the environment when no one else will. While various organizations address environmental concerns many issues are left to chance. It is important to protect the environment on an individual, organizational and governmental level. No one organization connects all the environmental groups and environmentally minded individuals grappling with the ever-present pressure on San Diego’s natural environment. It is our goal to protect and enhance the natural environment of San Diego through education, activism and direct action. We can be part of the solution. The key to solving some of our big environmental issues of the day like climate change and loss of biodiversity is through education and stimulation of positive action right here at home in the community of San Diego.

A Letter from the Board of Directors

Conceived as an organizational tool, The Environmental Center of San Diego was incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit with just 4 board members in 2015. Today our board includes 6 dedicated environmentalists with long experience and professional success.

We have tasked ourselves with the protection, enhancement, restoration, and – in urban areas – expansion of our shared natural environment. This includes public advocacy at all governmental levels, outreach to all environmental organizations, public education at community events, and advocacy for and supervision of State of California mandated public coastal access and easements.

Again this year we host our annual Environmental Leadership Summit and welcome all of the diverse community organizations, groups, and individuals whose interests and goals range from neighborhood projects to regional, statewide, national, and global efforts on behalf of the natural environment. We also have assumed management of a forty-year effort, now in the design stage, to open a long obscured public access trail at Princess Street in La Jolla. We hope to announce its availability soon.

The triple threat of climate change, water and air pollution, and degradation of wildlife habitat must be met with concerted efforts to educate for public awareness, organize for public support, and cooperate in public action.

How can others help us? Follow us on Facebook and through our website. Support the local, regional, and national organizations we list here. Contribute to our efforts either online or by mail.
