Barona’s reverence for the environment
spans thousands of years since the time our ancestors moved throughout
the region, living in harmony with nature’s bounty. We continue this
respect by practicing energy and resource conservation thoughout our
reservation and resort property.
Our first on-site water
treatment facility went online in 1994; a second, more advanced water
reclamation plant was completed and implemented in 2000. Today, a
highly acclaimed and innovative water recovery program captures
rainwater and irrigation runoff, and reclaims almost 100% of the resort
and drought-friendly plants and grasses are carefully selected, and all
irrigation processes are closely monitored and controlled for optimal
efficiency. Throughout the Barona Valley, wildlife is protected and
preserved. Equipment, foot traffic, and pesticides are restricted in
all habitat and nesting areas.
