Join ReWild Mission Bay for the “March to the Marsh” Friday, Sept. 20

Take a few steps for climate action and join the ReWild Coalition and San Diego 350 as we march in solidarity with students from the Mission Bay High School Eco Club during the March to the Marsh in support of the Global Climate Walkout this Friday, Sept. 20.

Students from Mission Bay High will march to Kendall-Frost Marsh Reserve, with an expected ETA of 12:45 p.m. We’ll hold an event with students, teachers and VIPs beginning around 1 p.m.

We’re encouraging our climate supporters and ReWild advocates to meet at De Anza Cove parking lot by 11:45 a.m. Friday morning. From there we’ll begin our walk to Kendall-Frost Marsh. We’ll pause at Olney St. and Pacific Beach Dr. around 12:15 p.m. to meet up with students from Mission Bay High School, then resume.

Here’s the basic itinerary for the March to the Marsh:

  • 11:45 a.m. – ReWild advocates meet at the De Anza Cove parking lot at Mission Bay Park, and begin our walk to Mission Bay High School.
  • 12:15 p.m. – Arrive at Olney St. and P.B. Drive to meet up with Mission Bay High School students, then resume our march to Kendall-Frost Marsh.
  • 12:45 p.m. – Arrive at Kendall-Frost Marsh at P.B. Drive and Crown Point Dr.
  • 1:05 p.m. – Approximate time to begin media event at Kendall-Frost Marsh, at the same site as the Love Your Wetlands Day in February.
  • Students need to leave to return to campus by 2 p.m.

In conjunction with San Diego 350, join the ReWild Coalition this Friday to march in solidarity with Mission Bay High School students eager to make our planet’s climate crisis an issue on everyone’s radar.

And building from the ReWild “Wildest” wetland restoration option, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to adapt to climate change, mitigate it, and mobilize our efforts to restore native wetlands in northeast Mission Bay and make our public places and public spaces work for all of us, while protecting our resources for future San Diegans.
