SD101: The San Diego River
Living with our Unpredictable Resource

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2021  |  12:00PM – 1:00PM  |  ON ZOOM

ABOUT THE EVENT
The San Diego River and its watershed area is a historical, archaeological and biological treasure of statewide significance. For thousands of years this area’s inhabitants were dependent on the San Diego River for their water until the population became too large in the latter part of the 19th century.  In recent decades, emphasis has slowly shifted to environmental issues associated with the river, such as habitat destruction, flooding and recreational, along with educational opportunities. Join us to discover the ebb and flow of this unpredictable resource’s history and how San Diegans can protect its future.

Speaker and bio:
Barry Goldlust is a former pharmaceutical researcher and, since 2014, a volunteer docent at the San Diego History Center, and our first graduate of the Community Historian Program.
