Friday-Saturday, March 28-29, 2014. This year’s Bioblitz is happening in our own Golden Gate Park! To celebrate and protect biodiversity the National Park Service, National Geographic, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and Presidio Trust are hosting a 24-hour BioBlitz species count and two-day Biodiversity Festival:

The public will participate in forays to count and identify species at locations in San Francisco and Marin (pre-registration required). The free festival at Crissy Field has activities for everyone. I’m happy to be involved in the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators presentation. Meet Nat Geo explorers and photographers, hear the Banana Slugs Band in person!  pdf schedule of events:


Art of Nature in Santa Cruz, April 5- June 29


I’ll be exhibiting recent work in this year’s Art of Nature at the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History. Showing artwork by California Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, and students of the CSUMB Science Illustration Graduate Program, for its 25th annual exhibit highlighting the amazing detail and artistry of local science illustrators. See why art is so important to science and our understanding of the natural world. Explore the beautiful world of illustration and test your own skills while drawing Museum specimens in the museum’s Illustration Station.
