Time: 4:00PM - 6:00PM

Instructor: Dan Fontaine and Elaine Gibson

Location: Courtyard and Blaksley Library

For its fourth year, the Wine and Cheese Botanic Lecture Series is bringing together the local scientific community for talks about Santa Barbara ecology, ancient horticultural methods, sharks, and wine tastings from local wineries.

Whatever happened to 'Go outside and play'?

How can we help children (and grandchildren) reconnect with nature in a world completely different from the one we grew up in? The Executive Director of the Santa Barbara's Wilderness Youth Project, Dan Fontaine, and Nature Education Specialist for the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, Elaine Gibson lead a conversation about Santa Barbara’s role in the new nature connection movement and different strategies that both of their organizations are using to get kids excited about being outside again. This gathering opens tastings and conversations with two our our favorite vintners, Steve and Robbie Gliessman.  Guests will leave with a complimentary selection of childrens nature books.
