Save Aztec Canyon!
This San Diego State University canyon:
- is home to as many as 85 rare and endangered species of plants and animals
- is an on-campus living laboratory for the study of environmental and developmental impacts
- gives students a glimpse of the "natural" state of Southern California's ecosystem
- was set aside in 1997 for conservation and preservation by joint agreement between the state, city, and federal governments as part of San Diego's Multi-Species Conservation Program Subarea Plan
But, SDSU plans to destroy it forever to make room for new student housing.
SDSU's plan is ill-conceived and unnecessary.
There are multiple alternative sites on campus for more student housing -- alternatives that would not involve a full-on assault on rare and endangered species and habitat.
