Our guest speaker this month is Shannon Switzer who will be speaking about her Source to Sea project. Shannon used a combination of photography, cinematography and interviews to document the health of our watershed system here in San Diego County and how it affects the health of our marine ecosystems and local citizens. As part of the project, Shannon trekked an estimated 90 miles on foot from the headwaters of the San Dieguito River in the Volcan Mountains down to the river mouth at Dog Beach in Del Mar.
