Interested in preservation? There's a great article at the San Diego Hiker blog with links to a lot of the local foundations working hard to protect parks and open space. They can always use our help.
Just in the last few weeks I've seen an uptick in conservation discussions in the online San Diego community, which is great (here's a current article from the San Diego Outdoor examiner). One of the best ways to get individual people interested in conservation, whether they're outdoor enthusiasts or not, is to emphasize the connection between enhancement of private land and home ownership and preserving open space. Hopefully that means now is not the time for SDG&E to succeed with their shenanigans.
