What does the future look like for San Diego's favorite wildflowers as our climate changes? Internationally acclaimed conservation photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter share their journey photographing wildflowers and superblooms throughout California and the West.


In 2019, Climate Science Alliance Director Dr. Amber Pairis collaborated with Rob Badger and Nita Winter to help share the story of climate change impacts on California’s incredible wildflowers. “Beauty and the Beast: California Wildflowers and Climate Change'', co-published with the California Native Plant Society, features essays from Dr. Pairis and fifteen other notable climate leaders alongside striking imagery of native blooms.

Small but mighty, pollinators are some of the most important animals on the planet. The Nat’s Curator of Entomology Dr. Michael Wall and Climate Science Alliance team member Ana Lutz-Johnson presented on how increased human activity and our changing climate is having an impact on pollinators—from bees, bats, and butterflies—and what we can do to help.


Throughout 2021, The Nat and Climate Science Alliance are offering a series of evening talks and daytime lessons around climate change, their impacts to our region, and what we can do to help. These offerings will take place seasonally and dive into the astoundingly varied consequences of our changing climate. The more we know, the better we can respond to what's happening.
