CONES: California Online Naturalist Event Series

CONES Spring_Summer_lg 2021

Welcome to CONES, the new monthly California Online Naturalist Event Series. This series is created by and for UC California Naturalists and UC Climate Stewards to connect across the state on topics including natural history, ecology, climate change, and the intersections of pressing human and environmental issues. While we're not checking IDs at the door, we're also not advertising beyond our community of certified California Naturalists and Stewards to ensure we create a space to connect and grow together. A recording of each talk will be available to the public afterward, pending speaker approval.
