Meetings are open to the public.

The Coalition has unanimously adopted a set of Ground Rules for the meetings. Each member organization has agreed to follow these guidelines for the Coalition meetings and supports the mission of the Coalition. Each organization designates someone to represent them at the meetings.

We encouraged interested individuals and organizations to come to one of our public meetings. They are terrific places to meet other people interested in the river, to exchange ideas and experiences, and to learn the latest news about the San Diego River Park.
