    Obi Kaufmann and The State of Water | Herbwalks June 29

    Obi Kaufmann dives fearlessly and joyfully into the maelstrom that is The State of Water in California. Luscious illustrations reveal that joy, accompanied by text that faces historic challenges and a troubled future head on.” – David Carle, author of Introduction to Water in California

    Author of the bestselling and award winning California Field Atlas, Obi Kaufmann will make a return appearance in Ojai on Saturday, June 29, on the statewide book tour for his next published work, The State of Water, Understanding California’s Most Precious Resource (HEYDAY, June 2019). Obi’s February 2018 visit here as the guest of Ojai’s Lanny Kaufer, included a nature walk, painting demonstration, and book signing. It was a sold-out event. This time Kaufer and Kaufmann will lead the group to a free-flowing stream in Matilija Canyon, the fitting place to learn about his latest book. The hike will be a fairly easy walk of one mile each way with one creek crossing.

    This event will go on rain or shine with an added indoor morning session in case of rain. Registrants will receive confirmation and updates by email. For registration and information, visit
