Passion for the Park

Over 300 people attended the 7th Annual River Valley Fest “Passion for the Park” at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club to celebrate the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy’s (SDRVC) 30th anniversary. Along with other local musicians, acclaimed singer-wongwriter Jack Tempchin, who is best known for penning some of the most iconic songs of the past several decades, performed old and new hits. In addition to musical entertainment, guests also enjoyed a cocktail reception, buffet dinner, and silent and live auctions. Proceeds from the event support the work of SDRVC, a nonprofit conservancy dedicated to sustainable management of the natural resources of the San Dieguito Watershed. Learn more at
