Bug Walks with Ron Lyons

Please note: The web site moved here was essentially frozen between late 1999 and May 2003 while I was not connected to the Internet. I would like to thank my former employer, the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences at the University of California, San Diego for allowing it to remain active during that period.

Chula Vista Nature Center
(1000 Gunpowder Point Drive, Chula Vista, CA 91910-1201)
    Chula Vista is just south of San Diego.
    The Nature Center is located on the Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge.
    I volunteered as the Bug Walk Leader there between 1990 and 1999.
