November 26, 2014 (Lakeside) – Lakeside River Park Conservancy invites you to join in a winter stroll on December 13th from 9 a.m. to 10:30 am.  The free event will take you along a Lakeside promenade through autumn colored leaves of deciduous willow trees.  Pause on a wildlife observation deck to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Among the many species of birds in this riparian habitat are crested Phainopepla feeding on mistletoe berries high up in sycamore trees.

Phil Lambert, naturalist from Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary, will teach you about native flora and fauna at the Lakeside River Park Conservancy and the transformations that have taken place here over the last few years, reclaiming this rich habitat along the San Diego River.

Lakeside's River Park Conservancy is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 dedicated to preserving and restoring the biological integrity and beauty of the San Diego River while integrating recreational, educational, and cultural opportunities to the community.

The Lakeside Riverpark Conservancy is located at 12108 Industry Road in Lakeside. To register for the winter river walk, visit
