A north county teenager is doing what he can to preserve the native plants along the bluffs in Del Mar. About a year ago, he noticed what he describes as a neglected area near Anderson Canyon."I would always just notice as we were walking empty land with just weeds and nothing else, I felt it was wasted land in such a beautiful spot," said Tyden.
On Feb. 27 Del Mar teenager Tyden Chinowsky led a replanting effort at the Del Mar Bluffs at Anderson Canyon, an area that he had carefully restored and brought new life last year.What started as Tyden’s Bar Mitzvah project has now grown into a nonprofit organization. Tyden continues to host clean-ups.
Native Del Mar is run by teen entrepreneur Tyden Chinowsky.
In 2019, Tyden (age 13) presented the Initial Plan of Action to the City of Del Mar for the restoration of native plants and removal of invasive species on top of the bluffs on the southern end of Del Mar, CA.
The mission is carried out by residents of San Diego, Del Mar, and neighboring communities. We couldn't do the work we do without our volunteers of all ages. Thank you!
