COAST CITIES — San Diego Habitat Conservancy is celebrating its ongoing habitat conservation efforts in San Diego County at its second annual gala from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Parioli Italian Bistro, 647 S. Coast Highway 101, in Solana Beach.
The gala was established to bring together residents near the various preserves throughout San Diego County, as well as donors, members, board members, staff and volunteers of the San Diego Habitat Conservancy. The evening provides a chance for the conservancy to highlight and share past and ongoing management efforts of their preserves in San Diego. All residents of San Diego County with a desire to learn more about habitat preservation are invited to attend. A complimentary light dinner of antipasti, pastas, and salads will be provided.
“San Diego County is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and it is our goal to instill a sense of stewardship for the residents of the county and celebrate the uniqueness of the natural environment that surrounds us,” Don Scoles, executive director of the San Diego Habitat Conservancy, said.
The San Diego Habitat Conservancy manages a number of open space easements throughout the San Diego region, preserving and managing the sensitive habitat and species on those easements that are unique to our Southern California environment. SDHC strives to share the knowledge of and obligation to the natural environment with the San Diego communities, encouraging participation in the stewardship of our region’s precious open space. San Diego Habitat Conservancy’s vision is “a healthy natural environment that engages the commitment of people and communities, creates a legacy, and improves the quality of life for all living things.”
Founded in 2000 as a nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, San Diego Habitat Conservancy was granted 501(c)(3) nonprofit status from the IRS in 2002.
