This year marks Silverwood’s 50th birthday, and we have launched an ambitious campaign to raise $50,000 to sustain the sanctuary’s operation and programs. Celebrate with us by making a special gift today!
Fifty years ago this spring, Harry Woodward, then president of Central Savings and Loan Association, invited San Diego Audubon to hold our June picnic at Silverwood, an 85-acre property owned by his family. Seventy members attended – a big turnout for what was then a 300-member organization.
Shortly after the picnic, Harry offered to donate the property to San Diego Audubon to be maintained as a wildlife sanctuary. By December of 1965, ownership of the 85-acre property was transferred, and Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary was born.
Flash forward fifty years, and Harry Woodward’s vision of establishing a sanctuary for local wildlife has been multiplied many times over.
