Urgent! Fight to Save the Buena Vista Creek Valley, Home of the Marron Adobe

A crisis point has been reached. Through all of your efforts these last few years we have saved the sacred El Salto Waterfall in the beautiful, wild Buena Vista Creek Valley — but what will surround it? Our priority focus right now remains the Buena Vista Creek Valley.

The McMillin company proposes 656 homes on the eastern half of the valley. That’s hundreds of homes around the waterfall, and along the entire site! Hiking along the creek, or sitting on the porch of the historic Marron Adobe, we could be assailed by the sight of hundreds of homes! Hundreds of homes covering the land that Native Americans have lived on, going back 9,000 years. Hundreds of homes in this valley that’s been designated one of the most threatened historic areas in all of San Diego County!


Hundreds of homes along Buena Vista Creek, next to our reserve, and in the wildlife movement corridor. Hundreds of homes adding more traffic congestion, more air pollution, and more noise and disruption to existing streets & neighborhoods. This area was listed as the number one site to preserve on the city of Carlsbad’s Open Space report.

Five people will decide what happens in this valley — the Mayor and City Council of Carlsbad. Help us convince  them that the residents of north county want to see this area preserved.

What can you do: 1) Call or e-mail the Carlsbad Mayor and City Council at (760) 434-2830 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. (Letters from historical organizations are especially needed.)

2) Attend the City Council hearing, send us your contact information for future alerts and meetings. 

3) Get a group of folks to join us for a tour of the valley and to get involved. With your help we can do it!

We are now at the end of August - “Breaking Barriers: What it will take to achieve security, justice and peace” is only one month away! We hope you will be able to join us at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice for this international conference of peace builders held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Women PeaceMakers Program.

This singular working conference will convene nearly 40 Women PeaceMakers from 33 countries with other peace builders and human rights defenders to strategize how to overcome both the ageold and newly systematized impediments to peace. Understanding that peace does not come at the end of conflict but with the rise of justice, panel presentations, workshops and breakout working sessions ill engage delegates to formulate recommendations under three primary areas: security, justice and peace.
