After an immensely successful inaugural year, Lindsay Wildlife Experience is proud to announce its second season of Conservation Icons! And on January 5, 2019, Lindsay has secured premiere speaker, famed anthropologist, ethnobotanist and author Dr. Wade Davis! And don’t miss Feb. 28 when Jungle Jack Hanna and his animals come to Walnut Creek for one night only!

Join Lindsay and SNAKE, rattle and roll on Sept. 15 when rattlesnake expert Dr. Emily Taylor with California Polytechnic State University come to Lindsay!

The Conservation Icons series aims to educate, entertain and inspire change! And this year, tickets will sell out with speakers including founder of the Unbound Project, Raabia Hawa, who works to protect Kenyan wildlife, and Joel Reynolds from the Natural Resources Defense Council, who is quite literally the Earth’s lawyer.
