Watershed Explorers

Join us for a family-friendly Watershed Explorers program at the San Diego Archaeological Center. Presented by the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, Watershed Explorers is an outdoor education program that provides youth an opportunity to travel and experience the length of the San Dieguito Watershed.

Each Saturday in October, the explorers journey to one of the following locations: the headwaters of the San Dieguito River on Volcan Mountain, Lake Hodges, the San Diego Archaeological Center, Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead, and the award-winning Birdwing Open Air Classroom at the San Dieguito Lagoon. At the San Diego Archaeological Center, families will be introduced to the cultural history of the region; learn what archaeology is, where we work, the variety of tools we use, and how we study the past here and all over the world; and create their own clay pinch pots to decorate and keep. Advance registration required. Space is limited to 20 per location.

About the Watershed Explorers Program

Each location focuses on a different theme providing a unique opportunity for participants to experience and learn about the many facets of the watershed from the natural world to its history and cultural significance. As they experience the outdoors, explorers develop a “sense of place” and appreciation for the environment – recognizing they play a role in preserving and protecting the natural and cultural resources of the watershed.
