Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges supports the Living Coast Discovery Center with $5000 gift.

The Covid 19 pandemic has caused many businesses and organizations to suffer decreased revenue due to closure by state health regulations. This temporary but months-long closure has caused a critical revenue shortfall for the Living Coast Discovery Center (originally the Chula Vista Nature Center) in Chula Vista, CA, which is facing permanent closure due to the shortfall.  The Living Coast Discovery Center is a critical environmental and wildlife education organization that supports the goals of the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges and its closure would be detrimental to the community. Therefore, the board of directors of the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges has voted unanimously to provide $5,000 to the Living Coast Discovery Center as a gift to help provide financial support.during the pandemic closure.

The Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges is a nonprofit organized to support the National Wildlife Refuges in San Diego County - The San Diego Wildlife Refuge near Jamul, The San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge which includes the Living Coast Discovery Center, and the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve which includes the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center and Border Field State Park.
