San Elijo Lagoon CONSERVANCY is a Southern California nonprofit land trust, founded in 1987. The nearly 1000-acre San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve is bordered by Solana Beach, Encinitas, and Escondido in San Diego’s coastal North County.

Our vision is a world where biodiversity is protected and people act to conserve nature and embrace it as central to a healthy community.

Our mission is to protect and restore the resources of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve, its watershed, and related ecosystems for the benefit of current and future generations.
