Hello Hikers!

Well it looks like the horrific heat is over for now. Just remember to check the forecast before you head out as things can always change.

This Thursday through the weekend, August 25 – 28, there will be free admission to National Parks in honor of the National Park Service Birthday!

Mark your calendars for September 24th, when the thrid annual Wildlife Hike-A-Thon will be held at Border Field State Park. All proceeds will benefit the Fund For Animals Wildlife Center in Ramona, allowing it to continue its rescue and rehabilitation services to ill, injured and orphaned wildlife and to provide care to permanent sanctuary residents. This event takes place on a scenic trail from Border Field Park to the Pacific Ocean. Bring the whole family and take the leisurely hike to the half-way point where you can enjoy a refreshing view of the Pacific Ocean and Monument Mesa before turning back to the finish line. Games and activities will be set up before and after the hike, including “Duck Rescue”, Wildlife Trivia and more! Go here for more information and to register.

The County Board of Supervisors  has voted to authorize the Department of Parks and Recreation to apply for $750,000 grant to acquire lands for the future San Luis Rey River Park. If acquired, these funds would be used to acquire 37 acres of riparian and wetland habitat along Highway 76.

Have a good week!
