Sign your Nature Explorer for a
Junior Membership with the
San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy!
Your child recently had a wonderful opportunity to explore the outdoors and get in touch with nature through a San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy event. We invite your nature explorer to continue to discover the unique features of the San Dieguito River Park as a Junior Member of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy.
What is a Junior Membership?
Junior Members are youth ages 5 to 12 that will visit and experience the sights and sounds of the San Dieguito River Park, teeming with plants, birds, and other wildlife.
The purpose of the Junior Membership program is to foster and cultivate a continued love of nature. Junior Members receive educational materials and field guides, which encourage them to get outside and connect with the natural environment. Each packet will have a theme, like native plants, local ecosystems, or geology. The field guides will help explorers identify plants, wildlife, and points of interest on River Park trails, increasing their engagement with the natural world. As Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods says, "It’s all about getting more Vitamin N(ature)!"
What will my nature explorer get from a Junior Membership?
An annual Junior Membership is $12. Junior Members receive:
Welcome package with a membership card, Conservancy sticker, field notepad, and pencil
Themed educational materials, such as field guides, fact sheets, and coloring page
Special Conservancy events for Junior Members during the year
