La Kretz Center for California Conservation Science
La Kretz Public Discussions
At the La Kretz Center, we are working to help make conservation science relevant and accessible to members of the general public. In partnership with the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, we host an annual Public Discussion focused on topics of current conservation issues that impact all Angelenos. These annual discussions are lively, informative, and help bring the perspectives of the public, scientists and managers to bear on important conservation problems in our city.

Includes a brief panel discussion, prior to the screening, moderated by scientist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olsen.
