Join us for a series of illustrated conservation talks with local experts in The Studio at MAGC in February and March.

The MAGC Conservation series addresses key aspects of conservation issues including habitat, water, pesticides, and the impacts of climate change on the plants and animals of Marin and the Bay Area. The series will provide up-to-date scientific information about the health of our local environment and guidance to residents wanting to have a positive impact. It is also a chance to learn more about the work of local organizations including One Tam, Hungry Owl Project, and the Oceanic Society. 

Each talk is followed by a wine reception and a chance to meet the speakers and learn more about their work.
