The Escondido Creek Conservancy (TECC) is a non-profit, public benefit, corporation, incorporated in 1991, dedicated to the preservation and protection of the natural open space within the Escondido Creek watershed. TECC believes the natural lands within the watershed are an irreplaceable natural asset with great community value. We support educational programs and compatible outdoor recreation within the watershed for the benefit of all residents of the area. TECC has formed alliances with landowners, government agencies, and education and community groups to increase awareness of the invaluable resources intrinsic to the Escondido Creek watershed. TECC's Board of Directors is comprised of committed local volunteers with expertise in business, science, land use planning, education, recreation, and restoration of natural landscapes.
Since incorporation in 1991, TECC has played a direct role in the acquisition of nearly 500 acres of senstive open space. These lands come to TECC through purchases funded by private donations, and by fee simple transfers of title in fullfilment of on- or off-site mitigation requirements. TECC has a proven record of dilligent and professional habitat restoration and management, both through in-house technical expertise, and sound fiscal management. Lands which are received for performance of mitigation are accompanied by endowment funds sufficient to manage the property in perpetuity. Restoration work conducted on property owned by TECC is, in most cases, funded by permanent endowments. TECC's permanent ('non-wasting') endowments are housed at and managed by The San Diego Foundation, a San Diego-based community foundation. Endwoment funds for each of TECC's land holdings are separate -- management funds for our properties are never co-mingled. TECC's non-endowment Land Acquisition and Management fund is also housed at The San Diego Foundation.
