San Marcos Plaza Park

Bring your lawn chair, sunscreen and outdoor toys and come enjoy a day of live music, food and fun for everyone.
Come kick-off the summer and help us honor the memory of Jeffrey “Yappo” Boruff, one of the dedicated volunteers that made a real difference working side-by-side with the professionals at the epicenter of this effort in Rancho Nuevo, Mexico.
The Bi-national project represents one of the most successful endangered species recovery efforts ever undertaken. This extraordinary four-decade effort has brought the turtles back from the brink of extinction through the dedicated work of both professionals and volunteers. Funding to support this important project is more important than ever. In its first two years, YappoPalooza has served as a springboard for fundraising that has resulted in over $200,000 to sustain the program as it has suffered from decreased funding at the state and federal level. It has also highlighted the importance of volunteerism in driving successful conservation projects. Be part of the success and volunteer for the 3rd Annual YappoPalooza.
