11 AM: The Vitamin “N” (Nature) Factor in Our Lives, & Our National Parks’ Future!
1 PM: Moving to Mars
2 PM: Kumeyaay Artifacts & Fire-Making Demo


11 AM: The Vitamin “N” (Nature) Factor in Our Lives, & Our National Parks’ Future!

Please join Bill Evans and explore the many significant benefits and rewards of the Nature (Vitamin “N”) Factor, and why this is such an important ingredient for our overall health in today’s world. The Vitamin “N” experience might well reach its most potent potential in our State and National Parks, Monuments, and wilderness areas.  Their future for us, our children, and our grandchildren is now seriously threatened.  Bill will share a visual odyssey of his most influential Nature Vitamin, Glacier National Park, MT., a U.N. World Heritage Site. Bill, now a Museum volunteer, has been a Sierra Club National Outings Leader for 20 years. He’s visited, led outings, and photographed most of the Western U.S. National Parks. He said, “My ‘love affair’ with our National Parks began when I was a seasonal employee in Glacier National Park, Montana.” He will also share with you how you can become involved in protecting our National Parks!


1 PM: Moving to Mars

A Maya scribe looks up to the heavens and tracks the movement a tiny speck of red light. Thousands of years later we ponder the red planet and wonder if humanity will ever make the leap to become a space-based culture. In our time together, we will explore the possibility and technology that will take us to another home… Mars. Dr. Dave Roberts, anthropologist, photographer, and historian, has worked in the field of anthropology for over thirty-five years from a conference speaker and published author, to a field researcher…from the Caribbean, to Central and South America. And now he’s a Museum volunteer!


2 PM: Kumeyaay Artifacts & Fire-Making Demo

Fred Thompson has been our Kumeyaay presenter for many years. Fred and Roy Hastings took Kumeyaay artifacts out to school classrooms, teaching students about, “A Day in the Life of a Kumeyaay.” They would end the presentation with a demonstration of one of the ways that fire was made before 1492. Now the presentations are given at the Museum as part of our Focus Field Trip Program. As always, the fire making is the hit. All ages are amazed and excited watching fire come alive from friction using a fire-making bow. Don’t miss this presentation and demonstration out on the Daniel R. Ciccati Tropical Garden Patio.

Meet Author Ken Davis at the Rancho San Diego Library! – April 7, 2018

Join us for an Author Visit at the Rancho San Diego Library, featuring Ken Davis! Meet the veteran newscaster and broadcast producer, who will talk and sign copies of his new memoir In Bed with Broadcasting.

Saturday, April 7 @ 2:00 PM
Rancho San Diego Library
11555 Via Rancho San Diego

More about In Bed with Broadcasting:

Ken Davis began his career as a small-town radio DJ during his college years. Little did he know he would later find himself face-to-face with a notorious serial killer in the middle of the night; be nearly shot by a world-famous music producer; or unexpectedly come across the lifeless body of a legendary Hollywood bombshell. Along the way, he hung out with everyone from Barack Obama to Walter Cronkite to Sting.

These are but a few of the many adventures in Davis’s memoir about his colorful Emmy-award-winning career in television. But this is much more than a “tell-all” book filled with juicy anecdotes about famous people. It’s a down-to-earth and often humorous story of a man who must juggle his family and his “mistress” while trying to overcome adversity, ethical dilemmas, and an industry going through relentless change.

Along the way, readers get a backstage pass to many classic TV programs, including “The CBS Evening News,” “EXTRA,” “PBS NewsHour,” and “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous,” as well as venture inside the most historic TV station in the country.

Prepare to go behind the closed doors of one of the most enjoyable, harrowing, and seductive industries in the world. Once you hop “In Bed with Broadcasting,” you may love her or you may want to run for cover—but you will never forget her.
