In October 2015, the California Coastal Conservancy awarded a grant to nonprofit San Diego Canyonlands (SDCL) to bring their Canyon Enhancement Planning program to 12 urban canyons, of which Mission Hills is one.

SDCL will orient participants to the planning process and discuss constraints and opportunities for enhancement of Mission Hills Canyon. Organizers will also discuss other planning components funded by the Coastal Conservancy including habitat restoration, potential trails (if needed), viewpoints, etc.

Light refreshments will be provided.
