Join Peninsula Open Space Trust and Patagonia in welcoming artist, writer and California naturalist Obi Kaufmann to Palo Alto! We’ll be hosting a gathering with free food and drinks, a live painting demo and a short talk by Obi about his new, groundbreaking book, The California Field Atlas. All attendees will be entered to win the live paintings that Obi will produce at the event!

The book illuminates the vast array of life in California through beautiful artworks. Obi’s masterpiece is a compendium of over 300 hand-painted maps that details the local topography.

Meet other local art and open space lovers and have an early opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Obi’s book!
