Sunday Wetlands/Waterfowl Arts Lecture at the Carnegie

Sunday Arts Lecture:Philip Garone

California Wetlands and Waterfowl—Two Centuries of Loss and Recovery: Tales from the Central Valley

CSU Stanislaus History Professor Philip Garone will discuss the environmental history of our region. Roman Loranc’s evocative photographs of our valley landscape will serve as a visual touchstone for this informative presentation. We will take a look at why the valley’s formerly extensive wetlands—and the wildlife they support—were almost all lost by the early 20th century, and how, for the past several generations, Californians have been successfully restoring and protecting our wetland heritage.

All of the Sunday Arts Lectures are free. Admission to the exhibition Roman Loranc: A Retrospective is $5 general; discounts for Seniors & CAC Members apply. For more information, call (209) 632-5761.
