Threats and Stressors in progress

San Diego RiverBlitz

Volunteer citizen science teams hike segments of the urban San Diego River to collect data about trash, homeless encampments, and invasive plants. This data is collected using a data mapping app called Mappler. RiverBlitz takes place twice annually, allowing for year-over-year comparisons of point-in-time data. On-going surveys and data mapping efforts supplement the RiverBlitz program, allowing the San Diego River Park Foundation to initiate real-time responses to trash and invasive plant species.
