March 16, 2-3 pm: Afoot & Afield” presented by Scott Turner.    This is the 5th edition of this franchise book written by Jerry Schad, a Mesa College professor who succumbed to cancer at an early age.  Scott Turner was chosen to continue this series in Schad’s stead.  This book had become the bible for local serious hikers which included Scott Turner.  Turner noticed that Schad’s 2007 edition had become somewhat outdated. Turner has hiked every trail in the 4th edition, making updates to the information as required, and has even added some new trails of his own.  His efforts were rewarded with this 2017 released 5th edition.  We had hoped to have Scott speak at the San Carlos Branch last fall, but scheduling fell through.  He is anxious to update our patrons with his knowledge of San Diego’s best hiking trails, including those in Mission Trails Regional Park.  See you there!
