Mission Statement

The Mission of San Diego Canyonlands is to promote, protect and restore the natural habitats in San Diego County canyons and creeks by fostering education and ongoing community involvement in stewardship and advocacy, and by collaborating with other organizations. San Diego Canyonlands is dedicated to educating San Diego's youth about the value of open space, community stewardship and volunteerism as well as developing a 'sense of place' in the nature of San Diego.

General Information

San Diego Canyonlands is an organization formed by experienced individuals that served for years in leadership capacities on Sierra Club's San Diego Canyons Campaign. Recognizing that San Diegans love their neighborhood canyons, the Sierra Club launched the Canyons Campaign in 1999, developing over 40 "Friends Groups" throughout San Diego County to steward the neighborhood canyons. San Diego Canyonlands is continuing to build on the work of the Sierra Club "Friends Groups" by developing local leadership that will provide sustainable stewardship of the unique canyon/creek habitats that wind throughout most neighborhoods in San Diego.
