Snow leopard talk at Quarryhill


Quarryhill Botanical Garden

Saturday August 18th 2018 - 5:30pm to

The third annual Peter H. Raven Lecture Series at Quarryhill Botancial Garden continues on Saturday, Aug. 18, with Rodney Jackson, noted scientist and founder of the Snow Leopard Conservancy.

From 5:30-6:30 p.m., Jackson will discuss “Conserving the Rare Ghost Cat of the Himalaya and Beyond.” Jackson is a South African-born scientist and founder of the Sonoma-based Snow Leopard Conservancy. For more than 30 years, Jackson has been working to ensure snow leopard survival and conserve mountain landscapes by expanding environmental awareness and sharing innovative practices through community stewardship and partnerships. His efforts have helped Himalayan and southern Siberian livestock herders coexist with snow leopards and to restore traditional beliefs, including their connection to the cat as a powerful totem.

Gates open at 5 p.m. Cost is $35 for members, $45 for nonmembers. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Go to www.quarryhillbg.org/page162.html for more information. Quarryhill is located at 12841 Sonoma Hwy. in Glen Ellen.
