Successful San Diego Partnership

A thank you note from Freddy Arthur

Field Supervisor at San Diego Canyonlands

 

Our summer with SSP volunteers was wonderful! Once again, a measurable positive impact was made in and around our community’s canyons. 2015’s efforts of helping a neighbor to a canyon rim were quadrupled this year. Four elderly or disabled neighbors’ neglected yards were cleared of years of trash and debris and then mulched to control re-growth. This work benefited the entire canyon community by reducing fire hazards and improving the aesthetics of the canyon trail head’s surroundings. SSP volunteers also improved important trails in four canyon areas, bringing to us much needed engineering skills!

SSP’s volunteers, the numbers and variety, also proved to be a speed training for our newer staff members who had limited experience with volunteer management. I had a death in the family during the summer and I left for South Carolina on August 9th, leaving a now well-trained and experienced staff capable of managing large groups of volunteers in my, what looks to be extended, absence. This summer’s volunteers provided the gift of experience as well, thank you for that.

It was a pleasure coordinating events with Andrew, Lindsay, and Chris. They were so flexible when jobs were completed quickly and we needed volunteers sent to new locations on short notice, and the field team leaders were awesome. They ran a very efficient tight ship and their organizational efforts were much appreciated.

Thanks for another productive summer in City Heights, we look forward to the summer of 2017!

 

Sincerely,

Freddy Arthur
