California Wildflowers and Climate Change
Event detail

Focusing on California, exquisite photographs by Rob Badger and Nita Winter highlight spectacular wildflower landscapes and intimate floral portraits created on California's public lands. Badger and Winter have documented wildflower environments from below sea level in Death Valley National Park to the high alpine "rock gardens" above 11,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The exhibit features Bay Area wildflowers, and includes many breath-taking photographs of 100 and also 50 year blooms seen across Southern California that defy description.This exhibit addresses climate change and other human impacts, and their effect on a universal symbol of beauty - the wildflower.
