The Friends of Rose Creek had a wonderful time leading Bird Watching Bingo walks along Rose Creek and to De Anza Cove. We had positive support for our Petition to create Rose Creek Park in the portion of the creek that is not currently dedicated parkland and collected many signatures. We hope you had time to enjoy Love Your Wetlands Day and look forward to collaborating with all these wonderful organizations again.

The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope. ~~ Wendell Berry
Elections are approaching fast, November 6 at a polling place near you. Take some time to ask the candidates about their positions on protecting and enhancing our local open spaces, their plans for keeping our ocean water clean, and how they propose to clean our air.
There are a number of planet friendly organizations in town that are vetting candidates. Take the time to check out their endorsements and then learn more. We need elected officials who protect the landscape that makes San Diego such an amazing place to live. Some of these groups don’t have their November ballot recommendations up just yet, but check back in a week or two.
Rose Creek and the rest of the San Diego’s natural places thank you for thinking of them.
A huge shout out to the 188 volunteers who showed up for Coastal Cleanup Day at Rose Creek. Volunteers removed couches, Arundo Donax (giant reeds), lo a Lime bike fished out of the creek and a tiger! Enjoy these photos of the action and the trash! Click on photos to enlarge!
