Results are in from our 2015-2016 Watershed Stewardship Program for the San Diego River in Alpine.... Cumulative tally of our measurable progress to date: 40 properties cleared of invasive and highly flammable Arundo donax, totalling 4.5 acres of Arundo canopy cover, and 25,625 pounds of trash and hazardous waste and debris removed from Alpine's creeks and streams leading into the San Diego River and the El Capitan Reservoir (City of San Diego potable water supply).

Thanks to all of our agency partners, volunteers, and local non-profit groups for supporting this important program. Special thanks to our funding partners at the Southern California Wetlands Recovery Project, California Coastal Commission, Earth Island Institute, and San Diego Gas & Electric, for making this season's work possible.

This year, we had a strong team of 28 volunteers throughout the morning helping with our 4th-annual Creek to Bay clean up in Alpine. Thanks to everyone's hard work and dedication, we were able to fill a 40-yard dumpster with trash and debris from two different sites along Alpine Creek - that was 3,760 pounds of trash removed from our waterways!

Big thanks to all of our volunteers and community partners. We couldn't have done it without you!
