Plane Crash in North Park, 1978
Lemon Grove Historical Society’s lecture series continues as historian Alexander Bevil delivers a white-knuckle account of the horrific 1978 crash of PSA flight 182 in North Park that killed all 137 aboard and seven on the ground. Body parts, fires, the shattered plane, and wrecked homes were part of the nightmare. Says Bevil, “The memories never go away, yet, the crash triggered new safety rules for commercial air flights.”

The intertidal zone at Cabrillo
Join Alex Warneke for a presentation about animals that call the rocky intertidal zone at Cabrillo National Monument home. In one of the most extreme ecosystems on earth, plants and animals are tested by crashing waves and desiccating wind and sun when the water recedes. Lifeforms deal with hazards brought on by predators utilizing claws and spines. Those who live in this area have developed adaptations for success, because passing the test means survival. Alex earned her Master’s in chemical ecology from San Diego State University.
