Keynote Talk: Reclaiming the Art of Natural History- The Coast Range of California

April 28, 2012 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

California’s Coast Ranges extend north-south for over 600 miles, more than two-thirds the length of the state. The variety of elevations, rock types, and climate zones in this group of mountain ranges supports a remarkable diversity of plant and animal life. John Muir Laws is working on an illustrated field guide to the region and in the course of this work has learned some delightful tales of natural history. Through an illustrated lecture, he will lead us on a virtual walk across the Coast Ranges, exploring amazing relationships between plants and animals as we go. Along the way, we will learn a three-step process that will help us see more and think like naturalists. Jack will also discuss some of the conservation challenges in the region and what stewards of nature are doing to confront them. Whether you’re a botanist, birder or hiker, don’t miss this great opportunity to enrich your next exploration along the coast!
