Special Feature Balboa Park: Heart Of San Diego
Preserving Balboa Park for future generations is the subject of a lecture hosted by the San Diego History Center Thursday.
Charles Birnbaum, president and CEO of the Cultural Landscape Foundation based in Washington, D.C., will talk about how cultural landscapes, like Balboa Park, evolve over time. He will also explain what can be done to preserve them in a way that best serves the communities that use them.
This is the 11th and final lecture in the series. It is part of the larger ongoing centennial celebration that kicked off with December Nights last year.
The celebration has been criticized for not being grand enough, especially in light of how much money has been spent.
Coons and Birnbaum discuss managing the park's future Thursday on Midday Edition.
The lecture starts Thursday at 6 p.m. at the San Diego History Center on 1649 El Prado in San Diego.
