Obi Kaufmann on "The State of Water: California's Most Precious Resource", The Lab, Sunday, 23. June 2019

Join us for a very special Science Sunday at the Lab as we welcome acclaimed author Obi Kaufmann, who will discuss his new book "The State of Water: Understanding California's Most Precious Resource."
For poet, painter and naturalist Obi Kaufmann, California is a magic network of living systems that connect in a grand, quilted array of ecology and beauty. Author of the bestselling and award-winning California Field Atlas, Obi is now booking speaking presentations and book-signing engagements for his next published work, The State of Water, Understanding California’s Most Precious Resource (HEYDAY, June 2019).
Obi Kaufmann’s lively presentation about how science and art can work together to deliver a powerful message of hope comes as an antidote to the miasma of despair that seems to pervade most popular discourse regarding the natural world of California and beyond.
Full of local and data-driven insight, backed by empirical and accessible system-theory models, Obi presents his exhaustive work based on decades of packing and studying California’s rugged backcountry, with all its nuance and majesty.
The culmination is an integrated vision of how we, as individuals and as a society, can more-positively work towards a future that functions in alignment with the rhythms of nature, regardless of the fits of politics, the crush of human population or the chaos of climate change.

Doors at 7 pm, presentation soon after.
$10-20 suggested donation. Questions? Email us!
