Environmental Education and Passport Program

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default

Your journey has begun! The Environmental Education and Passport Program makes it easy to learn about and explore San Diego's unique outdoors and become an official Naturalist.

Continue reading to find out how you can successfully complete the Passport Program...naturally!

WHY? More people are staying local rather than going elsewhere for vacations. We would like you to plan your next "playcation" with us. This program is another way for residents and visitors to explore San Diego's unique outdoors.

HOW? Download your temporary Passport or pick up an official one at our participating parks (see list below).

Check the Program Guide schedule for activities to participate in that will help you earn your stamps. When you visit our participating parks and take part in an organized environmental education program, you will earn a stamp from one of our Rangers.

Once you have obtained at least six stamps from six different programs, give your passport to a Ranger and you will receive your vehicle sticker and certificate of completion naming you an Official San Diego County Naturalist.

WHERE? Current participating locations:

Sweetwater Regional Park
Otay Lakes County Park
Agua Caliente County Park
Louis Stelzer County Park
Dos Picos Regional Park
Heise County Park
Lake Morena Regional Park
Goodan Ranch Open Space Preserve
Felicita County Park
San Elijo Nature Center
Rancho Guajome Adobe
Wilderness Gardens Open Space Preserve

QUESTIONS? For more information, contact the Ranger at the participating park or call the Department of Parks and Recreation at 858.694.3030. Good luck!
