NOTE: This event has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19. We will post updates as soon as they become available.

See California’s rivers, lakes, mountains, wildlife and more through the unique visual lens of artist, illustrator and naturalist Obi Kaufmann, author of the bestselling “The California Field Atlas,” and the recently released “The State of Water: Understanding California’s Most Precious Resource.” Kaufmann is one of Lindsay Wildlife’s Conservation Icons and will be at Lindsay 6 p.m., Saturday, March 28.

Having set aside a career as a gallery artist to capture the state’s trails, parks and wildlife in luminous watercolor, Kaufmann combines his prose and visuals in fascinating books that serve as interpretive guides to California’s precious resources. He has worked as an art critic, a tattoo artist, and creative storyteller for the Oakland-based Juniper Ridge wild craft fragrance company.

Kaufmann is one of eight speakers participating in Lindsay’s 2019-2020 Conservation Icons speaker series. Now in its third year, the series aims to educate, entertain, inspire change and foster respect for the planet we share. This event is part of the Subscription Series ticket package which can be purchased here.*

*Subscription tickets are only for the seven presentations held at Lindsay Wildlife Experience.

Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.

Obi KaufmannGrowing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. For Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred field atlases to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at his desk in Oakland, posting @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media. His website is www.coyoteandthunder.com.
