Save the Duck Pond

Word has it that the county of San Diego is going to fill in the Gillespie Field Duck Pond. Nooooo! It’s not much, And it’s getting less of a pond and more of an eyesore with every day. It’s sandwiched inbetween Chemtronics and other manufacturers but it’s one of the last bits of nature in… Continue reading Save the Duck Pond
