Save Nature

San Diego’s natural wonders, rich in biodiversity and unique ecosystems, are disappearing rapidly. From various disturbances — plants, animals, and the wellbeing of people are being negatively impacted.

Nature Collective is working urgently to save natural habitats, restore water quality, and protect wildlife. Our projects include the restoration of the San Elijo Lagoon and Annie’s Canyon Trail. By donating, you become a member that is part of the solution. Together we conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends — every acre we protect and every creek mile we restore begins with you.

Your donation helps you:

Coexist with Wildlife

The special feeling of making eye contact with a bird – or a mule deer analyzing you from across a field – is something Nature Collective protects. Because of you, we watch over 1,000 species of plants + animals unique to, and many endangered in, San Diego. 

Experience the Coast

When a child on a school field trip tells us this is their first time at the ocean, we’re motivated to keep them coming back! Like many children who live upstream or far away, they’re unable to access the coast. Your gift changes this by opening the outdoors to everyone.

Connect via Nature Trails

When you donate you help Nature Collective save open space. Acquiring lands is one of the purest forms of protecting nature for the future generation. Imagine more lands saved and new accessible trails connecting our communities. You will make this a reality.

Unite Friends + Families

With immersive experiences, family + friends enjoy the outdoors together. We encourage loving relationships with our rivers, streams, forests, slopes, and seashore. Your gift saves nature and shares its inspiring ways for a healthier, happier, and smarter world.

Nature, a Love Story

When we experience nature, it inspires us.
With mesmerizing grace, it evokes wonder.
In nature, we discover trees, critters. . .ourselves.
We can breathe.
We see things anew.
We come alive and we also come together.
It heals . . . centers . . . opens us up to new possibility.
Just one experience has the power to captivate our heart.
In love, we become her greatest steward and advocate.
