What a beautiful morning for our bench dedication with the Cadenhead's!  Our dedication ceremony was both intimate and well-attended.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! Especially the Cadenhead family for your generosity and strong show of support. 

Wright's Field now has a new gathering place. A place to sit and relax, watch the sunset, and maybe meet your neighbors...

The Back Country Land Trust (BCLT) is proud to launch a new environmental education program - guided Nature Walks at Wright's Field - in 2012!  Please join us for a docent-led "walk and talk" around Wright's Field the first Saturday of every month, beginning Saturday, April 7th - from 10am to 12noon.  

Natural and cultural history topics will be explored each month by different guest speakers, and should reveal some interesting facts about San Diego and East County history through guided interpretive walks at our Wright's Field Preserve in Alpine.  Hiking will be easy to moderate.  Sturdy footwear is recommended.

Docent field guides will be discussing topics such as: History of Wright's Field and Alpine, CA - like the Wright family, the preserve's namesake - as well as the ancient geology of the Laguna Mountains, unique native plants and endangered species of Wright's Field, and more...!!!  See flyer below for details.
