Del Mar: Lagoon Day Celebration is April 17

Del Mar’s San Dieguito Lagoon Preservation Committee is hosting its annual Lagoon Day Celebration this Sunday, April 17, beginning at 11 a.m.

Following tradition, please join in celebrating the successful progress of the San Dieguito Lagoon Restoration and hear the story of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch presented by Jesse Powell, a graduate researcher from Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Jesse was an original member of the 2009 SEAPLEX Expedition and will give a presentation on the cruise and the results from studying the Great Pacific Gyre, a phenomenon of great interest today. Jesse is a third year Ph.D. student at Scripps in biological oceanography. He is working to understand the relationships between acoustically derived zooplankton counts and zooplankton net tows. Before starting his PhD career, he worked as a laboratory technician at Scripps where he went on more than 20 research cruises. His interests also include development of oceanographic equipment.

An exciting addition to the annual Lagoon Day celebration will be the Inaugural San Dieguito Lagoon Day Photo Contest. Winners in three categories, beginner, junior and adult, will be announced during the celebration.

Doors will open at the Del Mar Powerhouse, 1658 Coast Boulevard, at 10:45 a.m. with the event beginning at 11 a. m. There is no charge for admission to the event, and coffee, tea and light refreshments will be served. On-street metered parking is available as well as in Seagrove Parking (hourly charges) across from the Powerhouse.
