Our scientists study the distribution of plants and animals throughout Southern California and the Baja California Peninsula. Fortunately, thanks to modern technology, citizen scientists, members of the public interested in contributing to science, have been able to help fill gaps in their knowledge.
Join Curator of Botany Dr. Jon Rebman and Curator of Herpetology Dr. Brad Hollingsworth as they share what species information they have been able to glean from the contributions of citizen scientists. They will also share what species are still a mystery and how you can help solve those mysteries with your smartphone.
The talk begins at 7 PM, but Museum doors open at 5:30 PM. Get here early to meet our City Nature Challenge partners and speak informally with our researchers about what they do behind the scenes at the Museum.
Tickets to this event go on sale March 17 for members ($9) and March 19 for non-members ($12). You can purchase them online, at the Museum, or by calling 877.946.7797. If you would like early access and discounts for Nat Talks and other events, join today: www.sdnat.org/membership.
