You can now visit the Birdwing, San Dieguito River Park’s beautiful new open-air classroom off Via de la Valle just east of I-5. Go either on your own or attend one of the free public programs already scheduled every weekend through July. Topics range from Trail Runners Boot Camp, Sky Hunters and Wildlife Tracking to Coastal Hikes and Yoga on the Beach. Some are for adults, some for children, and others for the whole family. Go to www.sdrp.org for the complete schedule and more information. Some 300 River Park supporters including volunteers, donors, designers and contractors, neighbors, staff and groups of school children took the path from the San Andres trailhead to celebrate the Birdwing ribbon cutting on May 13. County Supervisor Dave Roberts spoke of the thriving River Park, now just past its 25-year mark and looking forward to the next fifty. Former Supervisor Pam Slater Price recalled the early efforts to win Southern California Edison’s mitigation project, the largest in the country, that has spawned the restoration of fallow former farmlands into a “Grand Canyon” of river habitat, fish and bird reserves as well as hiking, bicycling and equestrian trails from Del Mar to Julian. Park off San Andres and go see for yourself!
