Le Caramel Candy Factory Tour

  • Thu Feb 8
  • 10:30 am
  • Le Caramel Candy Factory
    1181 Pioneer Way - El Cajon, CA (619-562-0713)
Le Caramel produces traditional French caramel made in their local factory using equipment brought from France and using the recipes handed down to them. Their products are sold around the country - even at the Hotel del Coronado under a private label. If you like caramel you will learn about it, see it and probably taste it. There is a presentation before the tour begins in the Candy Room - and then we will observe the manufacturing process.

The building is on the corner of Pioneer and Vernon north of Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon. (TBG 1251 F3). There is free parking around the building.

Pure Water San Diego Demonstration Facility

  • Wed Mar 14
  • 10:00 am
  • North City Water Reclamation Plant
    4949 Eastgate Mall
We have been here before but there are many changes and improvements. Pure Water San Diego is the City’s phased, multi-year program that will provide one-third of our water supply. The program will use proven water purification technology to clean recycled water to produce safe drinking water. Having a tour is a great way to learn about the water purification process. The tour will include a presentation and a walking tour of the facility. Find out how the City plans to use technology to produce our water supply and at the end of the tour a chance to sample the purified water.
