CELEBRATE THE OUTDOOR BEAUTY OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY WITH ADVENTURE 16
Public release of Coast to Cactus trail and field guide spans two nights and two locations at Adventure 16
SAN DIEGO, CA—In a stunning display of community partnership, Adventure 16 Outfitters will host the celebration and public presentation of a new hiking and field guide published by Sunbelt Publications, authored by volunteers for the San Diego Natural History Museum, and developed through weekly “Roam-O-Rama” columns in the San Diego Reader.
Coast to Cactus: The Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego Outdoors is the latest release from El Cajon-based publisher Sunbelt Publications and is written by a group of Natural History Museum volunteers—highly trained citizen science trail guides—known as the Canyoneers.
The public presentations at Adventure 16—recently rated one of the 25 best outdoor stores in America—will include an overview of the book’s features and highlights with Managing Editor and Sunbelt Publications President, Diana Lindsay, Q&A’s with Canyoneers, and raffles sponsored by the publisher and the San Diego Natural History Museum. Both events kick off with a meet-and-greet reception at 6:30 pm.
The programs at Adventure 16 come right on the heels of the opening weekend of the Canyoneer hiking season, which kicks off with a guided hike at Marian R. Bear Memorial Park on Saturday, September 17 at 8:30 am and another at Cleveland National Forest (Woodland Hill Extended) on Sunday, September 18 at 9:00 am. On these public walks, Canyoneers encourage participants to look at the surroundings to see what makes it special—to stop, look, listen, touch, smell, and examine—to understand the interactions in nature. This is the same message readers will find in Coast to Cactus. The book was written to serve as a “virtual Canyoneer,” inviting readers to enjoy an experience akin to a Canyoneer-led foray into nature.
