All geographic regions of California are highlighted in this stunning show. The exhibit features 7 different sections: Mountains, Coastal, Desert, and Central Valley regions, the power of fire and renewal, a behind-the-scenes look at capturing these images, and an overview of California’s geographic regions – those diverse and delicately balanced ecosystems supporting spectacular explosions of nature’s color. Most importantly, these beautiful images address how climate change and other human impacts affect California’s wildflowers
