California Wildflowers and Climate Change Virtual Program

Thursday, January 19, 2023 at 11:30am

Internationally acclaimed conservation photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter will take you behind the scenes of their twenty-seven-year journey photographing wildflowers throughout California and the West. In addition, they will discuss how climate change threatens this part of our natural history.

Their many journeys led to the award-winning coffee table book Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change. Their book blends art and science together with their stunning photographs.

Gorgeous scenery isn’t the only thing that makes the “Beauty and the Beast” wildflower photos so special. The photographers show how they create wildflower portraits in the field, lugging 80 pounds of cameras and their “natural light” studio equipment from below sea level in Death Valley National Park to 13,000-foot-high mountain passes.
