About the talk:
Join environmental writer and marine wildlife photographer Kim Steinhardt for an inspiring, photographic journey into California's coastal past, present and probable future. Both a lifelong Californian and experienced legal professional, Steinhardt will color the evening's talk with the legal, environmental, historical, and personal perspectives he's earned as an educator and protector of California's coast. Part art, part science, part law, this unique evening adventure will explore the sometimes complex relationship between humans and nature, with insights on everything from the latest challenges faced by the threatened southern sea otter to the timely issues covered in his recent book, "The Edge: The Pressured Past and Precarious Future of California's Coast," co-authored by local ocean expert and UCSC's Distinguished Professor of Earth Sciences Gary Griggs.
