The City of Chula Vista will host this year’s Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) Annual Workshop. The Workshop will be held on Thursday, July 21st from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mountain Hawk Park located in eastern Chula Vista (1475 Lake Crest Dr., Chula Vista, CA 91915).

The MSCP was developed to preserve a network of habitat and open space, protecting bio-diversity and enhancing the region's quality of life. This workshop will focus on local, State and Federal partners’ MSCP accomplishments including habitat acquisitions, management and monitoring. The workshop provides an opportunity for the public and interested parties to learn more about unique habitats in the San Diego region, the role of the MSCP in preserving open space and regional conservation and management efforts. This year’s Workshop offers two tours to habitat restoration projects in the South County. Members of the public will have the opportunity to learn about the habitats being restored and enhanced, the species benefitting from the projects, the status and funding sources, and how the work being implemented in the South County plays a role in the larger regional preserve system. The first tour to the Otay Ranch Preserve will leave Mountain Hawk Park at 9:30 a.m. and will highlight cactus wren habitat, Quino checkerspot butterfly and vernal pool restoration efforts as well as provide an overview of wetland and riparian restoration work planned in the Otay River Valley. The afternoon tour will leave Mountain Hawk Park at 12:30 p.m. and will highlight upland and vernal pool restoration efforts being completed along Proctor Valley Road. Space on the tours is limited and requires reservations.
