San Diego River Fundraising Appeal...

El Cap is At Risk


6/2009: Our beloved El Cap which towers over El Monte Valley and the San Diego River is on the market for sale.

http://www.sandiegoriver.org/el_cap.php

Can you imagine this landmark with a cell phone or other structure on it?

We can't either! Join us as we work to purchase 385 acres that are for sale. The owner has given us until the end of the year to raise the money to buy this land. We have negotiated a terrific price of just $1300 per acre.

Not only is this landmark visible from many communities, but it is also an important wildlife area. Golden eagles are known to nest in the area. A well known trail also provides access to a stunning view of the San Diego River and El Capitan Reservoir.

Join us in this race against time. Please consider making a donation today of $10, $100 or more.

If you can do more, please consider adopting one acre. $1300 saves an entire acre of El Cap. Either make a donation or pledge to raise the money by December 1, 2009. Send us an email to let us know of your pledge. Get your friends, co-workers and family to join you. Make this your personal cause! Together we can save El Cap!

Priority Acquisition Areas:

1) Santa Ysabel
2) Eagle Peak Preserve
3) Highlands
4) El Cap Mtn.
5) Chocolate Creek
