ICA Exclusive Border Tour

Field Trip to Friendship Park: US-Mexico Border in the Pacific Ocean (aka Border Field Park)

Friendship Park | 8:10 - 12:30
Price: $60.00 USD per person

This fascinating border tour involves a visit to Friendship Park, the area on the US side of the fences separating San Diego from Tijuana, where people go to communicate with and see friends and relatives on the other side. Access to this area is severely restricted, and is significant not only for its historic and cultural significance, but also for the surrounding natural beauty. The tour is led by Prof. Antonieta Mercado (U of San Diego, US), who is also one of our Opening Plenary speakers, and includes presentations by the Border Angels, a Park Ranger (on both the border and on wildlife conservation), and by Prof. Mercado herself.
