A Puma’s Journey – Conservation Storytelling Through Art and Science

Dwight Center for Conservation Science

Meet at the Dwight Center

Celebrating California’s iconic mountain lions and rich biodiversity, conservation scientist Dr. Tiffany Yap and artist Meital Smith share a story in their debut graphic novel about a young puma navigating a landscape altered by humans. Can the young puma overcome habitat loss, poison, dangerous roads, conflict with farm animals, and wildfire? Join us for a conversation with this duo and Pepperwood’s former Conservation Science Director Dr. Tosha Comendant as we talk about using art and science to teach about puma ecology, coexistence with wildlife, and compassion for animals and people in conservation storytelling.

Books and art will be for sale. Dr. Yap will be available to meet and greet and sign books after the discussion.

Opening Reception for “Our Family of American Wildlife” Exhibit

Opening Remarks 3:00pm

Meet at the Gallery at the Dwight Center for Conservation Science

For decades, Gerald Corsi has photographed the wildlife of the Americas. He’s traveled to remote locations and waited days for the perfect photographic moments. Gerald has an extraordinary capacity to sense when the spirit of an animal subject is going to visually emerge. Because of his unique ability, this Collection from North America is the most profound wildlife photography ever displayed in our Pepperwood Gallery. In these animal portraits, the viewer can feel the living spirit of the subject. These animal beings are truly “Our Family” and a joyful experience awaits visitors to this exhibition.

Art will be for sale.
