Volunteer Spotlight: Jonathan Appelbaum

This month, ILACSD would like to recognize Jonathan Appelbaum in our Volunteer Spotlight! Jonathan has led Creek to Bay and Coastal Cleanup Day efforts in Alpine and he is also active with the SD Audubon Society, SD Canyonlands, and the SD River Park Foundation. When he's not giving back to the community at volunteer events, he works as the lead biologist at the Endangered Habitats Conservancy. You can catch him at our upcoming Kids' Ocean Day event at Border Field State Park on February 26th!
