Mystery of Laguna Dolores

Join Christopher Richard, curator of Aquatic Biology at Oakland Museum, for a presentation on The Mystery of Laguna Dolores. Richard reexamines the legend of a “now vanished” fresh water lake believed to have been locatedMission Dolores Image in the heart of the Mission District. The lake is part of the founding story of San Francisco — it’s written about in history books, mentioned in encyclopedias, but after studying at least 100 maps of the San Francisco peninsula drawn before 1912 Richard has come up with a new theory.
