Why an Environmental Center?

THE ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER VALUES AND UNDERSTANDS THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN AND WITHIN NATURAL SYSTEMS AND HUMAN HEALTH. 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.
