Speaker: Susan Krzywicki, San Diego Canyonlands Board Member & Native Plant Landscape Designer

The presentation will review the formation of San Diego’s canyons and the history of San Diego Canyonlands (SDCL) as an organization. It is SDCL’s goal to create Friends Groups for each canyon, engaging neighbors and local stakeholders in advocating and stewarding their local open space. There are many ways to get involved with SDCL or your local Friends Group and this will be discussed during the presentation.

She has been an active member of this chapter and was the first Horticulture Program Director for the California Native Plant Society, as well as chair of the San Diego Surfrider Foundation Ocean Friendly Gardens Committee. She is now on the Bayfront Design and Cultural Committee for the Chula Vista Convention Center and parklands project. Susan joined the board of San Diego Canyonlands three years ago and curated the La Jolla Historical Society’s 2018 show on canyons and their impact on our ecology, politics and society.
