Location: Emory Cove, South San Diego Bay

We'll be planting up to 500 plants at Emory Cove to create enhanced feeding and resting grounds for our feathered friends.

Wear old work clothes, long pants, hat, boots or sturdy shoes and use sunscreen. We will provide gloves, tools, water and snacks.

Please RSVP to Shannon Dougherty at or 858-273-7800 x101. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian-signed waiver to participate - these can be requested in advance from Shannon or downloaded from our website.
