Join us at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 18 online via Zoom for a talk with artist, author and naturalist Obi Kaufmann as he discusses a hopeful new vision for California conservation and popular ecology. Author of the bestselling “The California Field Atlas,”  “The State of Water: Understanding California’s Most Precious Resource,” and the recently released “The Forests of California,” Kaufmann’s breathtaking depictions of California’s landscapes, habitats and creatures are accompanied by maps, informative prose and poetic musings about the wild inhabitants of our golden state.

Kaufmann will take us on a tour of his art and conservation efforts, and speak about his deep appreciation of nature and his East Bay roots, which inform his sumptuous watercolors of the state’s flora and fauna and prose that bridges science and poetry. Kaufmann can often be found traveling throughout California speaking about the protection and conservation of the state’s precious natural resources. This is your chance to learn more about the deeply personal vision of one of California’s most unique and passionate conservation champions.

This event is part of our Virtual Conservation Icons speaker series.
