Canyon Day Cleanup at Mesa College

March 8, 2019 | San Diego Community College District

San Diego Mesa College invites the community to join the 11th Canyon Day Cleanup and Canyon Classroom on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Canyon Day is a cleanup hosted by Mesa College in conjunction with the city of San Diego and Park Rangers from the Tecolote Canyon Natural Park and Nature Center. Students, faculty and staff from Mesa College, along with members of the broader community join together to clean a section of Tecolote Canyon and the nature trails adjacent to the college. Everyone is welcome to participate and refreshments will be provided. Volunteers will also receive a commemorative t-shirt (while supplies last). Students can earn 4 hours of community service hours for participating. The cleanup is recommended for participants 10 years and older. The cleanup will be held from 8 a.m. to noon.

The Canyon Classroom will be held from 10 a.m. to noon in the Mesa College Organic Garden Area (Near P100/P200). Canyon Classroom is a free family-friendly educational outreach event with interactive educational booths and activities, designed to inform elementary and middle school children about the wonderful environmental and recreational resources in Tecolote Canyon. A limited number of Canyon tours will also be conducted once the canyon is cleaned. Canyon Classroom is supported by students and staff in Mesa’s teacher education program. Canyon Classroom is all-ages and family friendly. Young attendees will receive a free give-away item (while supplies last).
