San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy - SELC


SELC was founded in 1987 to protect, preserve and enhance the San Elijo Lagoon & its watershed. A gem of biodiversity on the edge of San Diego, the nation’s 6th largest city, the lagoon’s 1,000 acres are dissected by a state highway, an interstate freeway, & train tracks. Every day a quarter million drivers barrel through the ecological reserve, which is home for more than 900 kinds of animals & plants, incl. many endemic & critically endangered species. SELC is governed by a volunteer board of directors, and its staff of seven combines strong science credentials with program management backgrounds. SELC focuses on the implementation of a biological management plan, environmental monitoring activities, and environmental education programs. A corps of approx. 30 volunteers is integral to the success of SELC’s efforts to raise awareness and maintain the health of the lagoon.
