Please describe your project in more detail.

San Diego ICO is an all-volunteer program of the Sierra Club dedicated to providing outdoor experiences to low-income youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to actively engage in nature.  Our goals are to help these children learn about the natural history of Southern California; challenge themselves physically; learn how to enjoy wilderness safely; and develop a desire to explore, enjoy, and protect open spaces near San Diego.  We are seeking funding for 30 hiking and snorkeling trips and 5 camping trips with approximately 400 youth participants. We are planning trips to Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the Laguna Mountains, and Joshua Tree National Park.

Funds raised will go to the Sierra Club Foundation, the 501(c)(3) public charity fiscal sponsor of San Diego ICO.
