Our great Friends board member Dick Pilgrim is spotlighted in the San Diego Union Tribune this month. His tireless efforts have made our Friends group and our wildlife refuges better.
“Dick Pilgrim can see the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve from his backyard. Since he was already so close, it made sense to get even closer.
“I thought, this would be a good place for me to spend some time and see what was needed to better the reserve,” said Pilgrim, 73, a retired educator who lives in Imperial Beach. “And also, so I could learn some things about the reserve.””
