The Friends is a group of volunteers who work to protect and steward critical land in Hellhole Canyon in Valley Center.
We educate the public on the natural wonders that comprise the Preserve. We support the recreation and enjoyment of the canyon by showing visitors how they can enjoy this chaparral treasure.
We also work to acquire and conserve ecologically important open space, which enhances and expands the Preserve’s conservation footprint. Collaborating with state and county government, local foundations, and private donors, the Friends has successfully added 266 acres of critically important open space to the now 2023-acre preserve.
