River Valley Fest


The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy held its fifth annual River Valley Fest on Oct. 12 at Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa in Rancho Santa Fe.

“Connecting People with Nature” was this year’s theme, as the Conservancy celebrated 28 years of conservation, recreation and education. Richard Louv was honored with a Lifetime Appreciation Award.

The event included great food, a live performance by Casey Turner and a silent and live auction with auctioneer Steve Hamman.

Proceeds from the fest will support the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. Visit
