We will meet at the Nature Center's parking lot and then at 815am embark on a leisurely stroll using the main walking trail.
Centuries ago, the Kumeyaay Indians found food and shelter in Tecolote Canyon, a place that today is rich with history. It has been designated as a cartographic feature on area maps for nearly two centuries and was given the name tecolote, or owl, for the diminutive raptor that lives in this canyon.
The City of San Diego acquired this land and it was dedicated on April 1, 1978. The Canyon has approximately 6.5 miles of trails that can be used for jogging walking and mountain biking. Also available to visitors is the newly constructed Nature Center which offers a host of exhibits on the animal and plant life of the Canyon.
