Thursday, March 24, 2022, 7:30 p.m.: A 27 Year Wildflower Journey: The Making of Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change, with Nita Winter and Rob Badger: Internationally acclaimed conservation photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter take you behind the scenes of their 27-year journey photographing wildflowers and superblooms throughout California and the West. In their new, 12-time award winning coffee table book, “Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change" (see for details), art and science are seamlessly woven into a beautiful work that celebrates California’s amazing plant diversity inspire hope and action.  Because many people don’t know that wildflowers are especially vulnerable to climate change and habitat loss, the photographers and the book’s 16 diverse authors have dedicated their life’s work to protecting them and/or addressing climate change. With this project they hope to inspire others to do the same.

Rob Badger and Nita Winter have been life partners and creative collaborators for more than three decades. Their work has been featured in Time, Mother Jones, and Sierra magazines, the New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and the Los Angeles Times. They are the recent recipients of the Sierra Club’s 2020 Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography.
