Motion-activated cameras are an important tool for documenting wildlife and monitoring their movements along the San Diego River.

The San Diego River Park Foundation has permanently conserved over 2,000 acres of land through its Save the Source program.  Our land managers and volunteer scientists use motion-triggered wildlife cameras to capture still photographs or short video clips of passing wildlife.

By reviewing time, date, temperature, direction of movement, species types, behaviors observed and other contextual clues in the images, we are better able to care for these important lands and protect wildlife corridors.

We have cameras at our 3 preserves: El Cajon Mountain Conservation Area, Eagle Peak Preserve and Peutz Creek Preserve.  At times, we post cameras at other locations, too.

Follow this blog to be the first to know when photos are downloaded from the cameras!

The San Diego River Park Foundation is dedicated to fostering stewardship and appreciation of the region’s namesake waterway. In order to protect and enhance the San Diego River as a place for recreation, habitat, and nature discovery, we are dedicated to engaging people to be stewards of the River and working towards the vision of a 52 mile, river-long system of parks, open spaces, and community places.
