The Mission of the Earth Discovery Institute is to build environmental
Earth Discovery Institute (EDI)
The Earth Discovery Institute supports innovative and effective environmental education and outreach programs that are integrated with scientifically-driven land conservation.
Through the efforts of volunteers and students, EDI partners with government agencies and non-profit organizations to preserve and restore habitats in the foothills of San Diego’s east and south county, south bay and connecting watersheds.
EDI invites young and old alike to connect with nature and work to restore and support our native habitats, while considering the environmental challenges of the region.
Whether you enjoy hiking, riding, birdwatching, or outdoor fitness, we encourage you to explore San Diego’s remarkable reserves and refuges, and to give land a hand. Participating in EDI events is a great way to explore, discover, and improve our region’s remarkable and vulnerable ecosystems.
