SDAS owns and operates two wildlife sanctuaries. The Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary, 757 acres and located in Lakeside; and the Anstine-Audubon Nature Preserve, an 11 acre property located in Vista. This year, SDAS successfully fundraised to add a 28 acre parcel to Silverwood, which will increase the size of the sanctuary to 785 acres. There are over 5 miles of hiking trails at Silverwood through native chaparral and oak woodland habitat. Meanwhile, volunteers working at Anstine-Audubon have worked to restore a pond to create habitat for native wildlife and plants, amongst the previously restored native coastal sage scrub and riparian habitat.

San Diego Audubon Society's Conservation Program focuses on endangered species habitat management (including coastal dune and salt marsh restoration), conservation planning, and environmental advocacy. The current work of the conservation program includes three main projects: ReWild Mission Bay, adaptive management of coastal dune habitat (in protection of California Least Tern nesting sites and space for an endangered coastal dune plant, the Nuttall’s Lotus Lotus nuttallianus), and advocacy work. Our on the ground, grassroots conservation programs are highly effective.
