San Pasqual Park Day, hosted by the San Pasqual Band of Diegueño Mission Indians on May 18, brought together community members for a relaxing and beautiful event focusing on watershed restoration and protection.
Attendees were greeted with live music, pizza freshly made in the stone oven, and activities from La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians, Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians, medicinal plant information from Indigenous Restoration, and hands-on science activities around marine protection from Climate Kids.
The event was held at a newly restored Mata'Yuum area in the reservation. The restoration of this area was a collaboration between the San Pasqual Environmental Department, Indigenous Regeneration, the Public Works Department, and community volunteers. The space offers a natural outside area to teach traditional food and medicine practices to tribal youth.
We would like to extend our thanks to the San Pasqual Environmental Department for inviting the Alliance to play a part in this special event!
This event was partially funded through the Whale Tail Grant. Thank you!
