grand avenue bridge
 The Grand Avenue Bridge Overlook is located east of Jimmy Durante Blvd, south of the San Dieguito River.  
The reuse of the historic Grand Avenue Bridge into an overlook was funded by a generous grant from County Supervisor Plam Slater-Price and labor and materials from Southern California Edison. Marathon Construction Company is the project contractor. 
The bridge will no longer allow access to the sensitive wetlands being restored on the other side. Now it will provide a restful viewing area to observe the abundant birds and fish in the newly restored lagoon.
Trail Restoration and Habitat Rehabilitation
Weekend work projects are designed to get volunters working hands-on in the field.  We welcome individuals over 12 years of age, families, and groups.  This is an excellent way to earn hours, credits, and badges! 
Upcoming Dates: 
Saturday, January 17th at 8:00 a.m. - till noon.
Sunday, February 8th at 8:00 a.m - till noon.
Saturday, February 21st at 8:00 a.m. till noon.
