About Us

The San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy was founded in 1987 to protect, preserve and enhance the San Elijo Lagoon and its watershed. California’s coastal wetlands traditionally provided water quality, flood and erosion control, habitat for plants and animals, and recreational opportunities. However, 95% of all wetlands are lost forever to urbanization and development. Covering 1,000 acres between Solana Beach, Encinitas, and Rancho Santa Fe, the San Elijo Lagoon is home to more than 700 species of spectacularly beautiful plants and animals, many of which are critically endangered. Visitors enjoy 7.5 miles of hiking and jogging trails leading though six different plant communities. The conservancy works to maintain and improve the health of the lagoon though habitat restoration programs, scientific monitoring, and environmental education.
