Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change


The Marin chapter of the California Native Plant Society has undertaken to sponsor an exhibition of stunning images by local photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter, which reveal the incredible beauty of California’s wildflowers and their varied habitats. This is a project Rob and Nita have been working on for more than 20 years and we are excited to have the traveling exhibit on display nearby. The photographs at this particular venue will emphasize our local landscapes but also include diverse geographic regions of California, from Sierra alpine rock gardens to Death Valley’s desert scenery. We are adding additional interpretive panels that link the wildflower images and the specific habitats of these plants in Marin. By making the connection between the land we all love and the threats it faces, we hope to create greater awareness of the potential for environmental damage that can occur with climate change, and offer ways to get involved to address it. 

Please come meet the artists at the opening reception, Saturday April 6 from 1–3 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

The Marin chapter is extremely grateful for the support we have received from the Buck Family Fund of the Marin Community Foundation and from Marin Municipal Water District, which has made this possible. We also thank the Bay Model Visitor Center for their support and the use of their lobby gallery at no charge.

Dates: April 2 through June 1
Time: Open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 am–4 pm
