Shrub Club - Habitat Restoration for Escondido Creek Conservancy

Shrub Club is BACK!

When: Saturday, September 10th, 2022 at 8am-11am

Where: Leomar Preserve; Encinitas, CA

About: The LeoMar Preserve serves as an important corridor habitat for traveling wildlife such as southern mule deer. The Conservancy is dedicated to protecting habitat and wildlife for future generations to enjoy by providing safe havens needed for their long-term survival.

Project: The LeoMar Preserve is a natural open space protected for the benefit of wildlife and plants. Many unauthorized trails have been constructed here, putting the habitat at risk of destruction and fragmentation.  Help is needed to de-construct the unauthorized trails so that they can be returned to habitat. This is hard physical work involving deconstructing a trail bed, hauling logs and other barricades, and digging. There are opportunities for lighter work as well, such as installing some fencing, using brush to visually block trails, etc.

Location:  Along Rancho Summit Drive in Olivenhain, (Encinitas/border of Escondido), Google Map Location

Parking: Please park along Rancho Summit drive. You will see Conservancy leaders stationed near a dirt intersection with Rancho Summit.

Children: Yes! This project is family friendly but children need to be supervised by an adult.

Bring: Work gloves, water, snack, epi-pen if allergic to bees.   If you have tools please bring them (pickaxe, shovel, hand-saw, wire snippers, other garden tools),  If you don’t have tools, they will be provided.

Wear: long pants, sturdy shoes, sun protection

Note:  Unfortunately there are no nearby bathrooms on Rancho Summit Drive.  There is a Starbucks restroom located at 1571 San Elijo Rd S, San Marcos, CA 92078 which is about a 15 minute drive from Canyon De Oro Road. There are porta potties located at the Elfin Forest Reserve which is about a 13 minute drive if you go through Canyon De Oro Road.
