BCLT kicked off our 2015 Summer Membership Drive on July 1st, with a goal of raising $15,000 by September 30th. All funds raised toward this goal will go directly to managing BCLT conservation lands, as well as continuing our watershed stewardship and environmental education programs in Alpine and the Back Country.

Join / renew today with your annual household membership of $25 or more, and support BCLT in our mission to protect eastern San Diego's open-space landscapes for wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation, now and for future generations! 

We hope you'll join us in celebrating 25 years of conservation in San Diego's Back Country. We look forward to building a strong community of new members in support of 25 more years of saving San Diego's rural heritage, Native American cultural sites, and pristine wildlife habitat - from Wright's Field in Alpine, to La Posta and Potrero.

Photos from our graffiti removal project on Saturday, June 6th, during our annual volunteer event in celebration of National Trails Day. Wright's Field in Alpine is now looking just a little bit better, without the unsightly eyesore of spray paint covering rocks on the preserve. 

Thank you to all of our volunteers that came out to help with this project, and to those that donated time & equipment to make this project a success.

Helping our local Alpine girl scout troop to earn their Bronze Award this year, BCLT is proud to announce that we've officially begun restoration of a small section of our native California bunch grass habitat at Wright's Field MSCP Preserve in Alpine. This quarter-acre section of our beautiful grassland habitat will be restored to it's pre-historic ecosystem, with native bunch grasses and wild flowers predominating, and will serve as a visual demonstration of the grasslands that the Kumeyaay Indians saw when they arrived over 8,000 years ago at the place we now call Wright's Field.
