The Uniqueness of San Diego at the Point Loma Library
August 28, 2019 @ 1:00 pm–2:30 pm
San Diego County is truly unique. The first Pacific coast site visited by Europeans, its area in 1850 was larger than Indiana. It embraces the most ecological zones, and thus more bird species (516) have been seen here than in any other county. In the 1880s we had the highest dam, and in 1948, the world’s most powerful telescope. We have the most farms and Indian reservations. This engaging show will explain why San Diego is arguably America’s most unique county. The instructor will be Dr. Philip Pryde, professor emeritus at SDSU, whose book San Diego an Introduction to the Region is now in its 5th edition. A book signing will follow the presentation.
