Talks, Classes, and Films

The Museum offers talks, classes, film festivals, and other informal learning. Nat Talks, made possible with support from presenting sponsor The Downing Family Foundation and media partner KPBS, feature museum staff and outside experts and authors from around the country speaking on an array of topics, including the latest in scientific research, history, conservation, and the natural world. Natural History 101 is a series of informal classes that offer a deep dive into the incredible biodiversity of our region.
