NCEA Team

The NCEA was formed in the Spring of 2015 by Encinitas Environment Day, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.


An active member of the Encinitas community for 10 years, Encinitas Environment Day collaborated with hundreds of local and regional businesses to put on 2015 EcoFest Encinitas, the biggest and best eco event in North County San Diego.

During the planning process, the team of volunteers realized that by working together and sharing information and resources, everyone benefited.

In an effort to build upon these learnings and create a more organized resource for the eco community in North County San Diego, the NCEA was established.

The NCEA is fueled by volunteers who are passionate about the earth and San Diego. If you would like to join us, please Contact Us!
