Come with all your senses tuned in for a lecture and visual tour of Pepperwood’s 3,200 acre preserve that explores the synergy of art and science. Shawn Brumbaugh, Santa Rosa Junior College biology instructor joins artist and art instructor Marsha Connell on a painting and drawing journey observing and interpreting Pepperwood’s majestic landscapes. Our presenters will discuss the historical importance of sketching in documenting scientific inquiry. Marsha Connell and Shawn Brumbaugh discovered their common interests through co-teaching the Natural History of Pepperwood course, which certifies participants as UC California Naturalists and served as the pilot for the now state-wide program.
