What's New at the Park?
Lakeside's River Park Conservancy would like to thank everyone who donated to the Park on Giving Tuesday.
The River Park staff and Pat & Chuck Dintrone matched the funds raised because the Park is close to our hearts and the heart of the community. All funds that were raised in this 24 hour period will help fund the preservation of the San Diego River, the development of trails and expansion of our educational programs.
While Giving Tuesday is over for 2013, if you were not able to donate duriing the event we hope you will still consider an end-of-year gift to the Park. You can help your community and reduce your taxes at the same time. All donations received by December 31 will be tax-deductible in the current tax year.

San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside
We are excited to announce the beginning of a new project: the San Diego River Field Station at Lakeside. Our goal is to take the 1908 Bostonia House that we own and repurpose it as a science education center where local students can come and learn science in a real-world setting.
This will be a major undertaking for the Conservancy so please help by donating today.
