The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy (SDRVC) recently added Carmel Valley resident Alex Kilian, along with Del Mar resident Jim Smith and Solana Beach resident Joe Bonner, to its board of directors. “We are thrilled to be joined by three outstanding new members,” said Board President Brad Bartlett. “Each brings passion and valuable expertise to further the Conservancy’s mission.”

Alex is a wealth manager and the healthcare niche leader within Aldrich Wealth LP. He brings years of volunteer and community enrichment experience to the SDRVC board, having previously worked with various organizations in Oregon, where he lived for many years. “As a younger board member, I joined to act as a liaison to the next generation of environmental stewards,” Alex said. “I hope to preserve the legacy of those volunteers and members that have come before me, and encourage new people to explore the park and support the Conservancy.” Learn more at
