Event description

Description

Join environmental author, marine wildlife photographer, and long-time Monterey Bay resident Kim Steinhardt as he discusses The Edge: The Pressured Past and Precarious Future of California's Coast.

This timely and inspiring new book, co-written with coastal expert Prof. Gary Griggs, is a dramatic snapshot of the California coast’s past, present, and probable future in a time of expanding human activity, political uncertainty, and accelerated climate change.

The Pacific coast is the most iconic region of California and one of the most fascinating and rapidly changing places in the world.

Densely populated, urbanized, and industrialized — but also home to wilderness with complex, fragile ecosystems — the coast is the place where humanity and nature coexist in a precarious balance that is never perfectly stable.

The Edge is both a celebration of the coast’s natural and cultural uniqueness and a warning of the many complex changes that threaten that uniqueness.

In addition to his insightful storytelling, Kim’s photographic work has appeared in National Geographic publications, CBS, NBC, and in other books and media. This evening's journey will be illustrated with some stunning coastal and wildlife photos, including a sneak preview from his upcoming sea otter book due out next year.

“The Edge is an important reminder that life in nature can only survive if we accept our responsibility to be good stewards." — Leon Panetta
