Adopt a Trail at Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary

Ways to Give

Leave a legacy at Silverwood Wildlife Sanctuary by adopting a trail!

The 785-acre sanctuary in Lakeside serves to preserve coastal chaparral and riparian woodland.  It is available for hiking, guided walks, bird watching, passive research, and education.  Over 324 native plant species and 124 bird species have been recorded there, as well as numerous reptile and mammal species, including mule deer, bobcat, and raccoon.

This crown jewel of San Diego Audubon has approximately five miles of trails to explore. Would you like to adopt a trail?

Silverwood's Adopt-A-Trail Program

The Adopt-A-Trail program provides monetary support for the upkeep of Silverwood’s 13 trail segments. Adoptions are for one calendar year and directly support trail maintenance projects. Adopters are acknowledged with “Adopted by” signage at each trail head for the duration of your adoption gift, on our website, and in Sketches newsletter. 

We'd like to offer a big thanks to our 2023 Adopters - your support makes a huge difference for Silverwood and the entire organization!
