Protect and Preserve Buena Vista Lagoon: Plans, Programs and Problems! Come protest at our rally and attend our fund raiser! This special meeting at the Buena Vista Audubon Society Nature Center ( S. Coast Highway in Oceanside right on the lagoon) will present a new video highlighting the proposed Boardwalk Project- a three story hotel, restaurant and condos and how it will effect this fragile lagoon ecosystem. Learn what we can do so future generations are not left with a degraded lagoon that cannot sustain clean water, clean air, open space and a place for native plants and wildlife to thrive. A silent auction will also be held. Enjoy popcorn and pizza while you watch the new short video done just for this cause called Defending Buena Vista Lagoon!

Citizens of Oceanside have been fighting the same battle for 41 years against outside developers, as testified by this letter to the editor:
LETTER - Sep. 18

Fight for Buena Vista a long one

"Preservation of the lagoon in its present usage is a definite must, and is most assuredly deserving of support by every North County resident genuinely interested in our area's wildlife and waterfowl conservation."

This statement is from a letter to the editor regarding proposed development along the banks of the Buena Vista Lagoon that was printed in this newspaper (then the Blade Tribune) in 1966. The development referred to was denied. Here we are, 41 years later, fighting the same fight. Citizens, help us put the idea of this development (82-room condo-tel, restaurant and condominiums) to rest.

Come to a rally Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Buena Vista Audubon Nature Center to view a video created just for this reason, and to continue decades worth of community support in preserving this land.
