Where Wild Beauty & Science Meet: An Evening with Yellowstone Migrations Photographer Joe Riis

February 1, 2018
5:30 - 8:30 pm
Free | RSVP

Wildlife photojournalist and National Geographic fellow Joe Riis, who has documented the migrations of pronghorn, mule deer, and elk in Wyoming for more than a decade, will give a multimedia presentation and book signing of his new book, Yellowstone Migrations. A reception begins at 5:30 pm with the program at 6:30 pm.

Riis will be joined by ecologist & UC Berkeley Professor Arthur Middleton, a Yellowstone Migrations contributor and primary scientific collaborator. The event features a Q&A and discussion led by Jonathan Jarvis, former Director of the National Parks System under President Obama. He is currently Director of the Institute for People, Parks, and Biodiversity at UC Berkeley.

Part of the Horace M. Albright Speaking Series, the event is sponsored by UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources and nonprofit publisher Braided River, and is hosted by the Brower Center, whose current exhibit, On Beauty, features the work of the late conservationist Doug Tompkins, whose pioneering use of the large-format photo books illustrates how beauty and ecological health are intrinsically linked.

“Animals don’t see boundaries or borders. Their quest for food and shelter is instinctual, and I hope my images help people understand and experience that.” – Joe Riis
