We are very proud of our beaches, rivers, lakes and lagoons here in San Diego and we believe that San Diegans have a responsibility to protect these vital areas. Through our educational efforts and campaigns, we aim to teach how vital watersheds are and why they should be protected. Some of the environmental solutions the Center is actively pursuing through our water protection programs are:
- Eliminate ocean-bound waste, counteract toxic runoff, and provide education on ocean stewardship to local communities.
- Reduce use of pesticides that add toxic runoff to our watersheds.
- Encourage responsible actions to limit litter and pet-waste that eventually end up in our waterways.
- Instill appreciation of our water resources through our elementary-school education programs.
