Nature and You Lecture: Wildfire to Wildflowers – Field Sketching in Stebbins Cold Canyon After the Wragg Fire

In 2015, after Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve burned in the Wragg Fire, Robin Carlson began visiting the reserve monthly to document in drawings the reserve’s response to the fire. The different habitats present in the reserve provide a glimpse into a variety of strategies that plants and animals use to anticipate and respond to fire, and thrive in its aftermath. Robin will give an overview of how she approaches field sketching and will talk in depth about the idea of using sketching to pay close attention to a place and its inhabitants and observe changes in that place over time.

Robin is a local natural science illustrator with a particular interest in how landscapes and ecological communities change over time. You can see Robin’s full Stebbins sketchbook on her Wildfire to Wildflowers blog: https://coldcanyonfirerecovery.com/.

This lecture is also paired with a field trip “Field Sketching at Stebbins Cold Canyon” March 9th where participants have the opportunity to learn first hand some nature sketching techniques on location.
