San Diego Guitar Festival: Shin-ichi Fukuda

Fukuda will be playing on a guitar designed for him by the Japanese guitar builder Masaki Sakurai. A pre-concert introduction will be presented by architect Kotaro Nakamura, who designed the Inamori Pavilion at the Japanese Friendship Garden.

San Diego Mammal Atlas

Past Event

Scott Tremor: San Diego County Mammal Atlas

Scott Tremor, mammalogist, will discuss long-tailed weasels and gray foxes. Tremor’s book The San Diego County Mammal Atlas, released in December, covers the biology of all 91 terrestrial species and 31 inshore marine visitors known here since 1769. According to a December 15, 2017 interview with Tremor in the Union-Tribune, “The long-tail weasel population is in great shape, and widespread…. They’re just elusive — you just don’t see them very often. The black-tipped tail, the mask, the orange, rusty pelt and the movement — the slinky, sinuous behavior is really the giveaway,” In the interview, Tremor also discussed the miner’s cat, the long-tongued bat, the badger, and the minuscule grasshopper mouse.

WHEN: Saturday, April 21, 10 am

Where: Tijuana River Estuary, 301 Caspian Way, Imperial Beach
