Paint/Sculpt-Out at Wind Wolves Preserve, Bakersfield, CA

Saturday, January 15 at 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join the CAC’s new Kern County Chapter as they host a Paint/Sculpt-Out at the unique and historically/ environmentally important Wind Wolves Preserve in Bakersfield, CA.  This is an amazing experience and such a pleasure to be invited by The Wildlands Conservancy to paint on this 30,000 acre preserve!

From the website:

Wind Wolves Preserve is in an ecologically unique region where the Transverse Ranges, Coast Ranges, Sierra Nevada, western Mojave Desert and San Joaquin Valley influences converge. Due to elevation ranges from 640 to 6,005 feet, the Preserve has an impressive array of landforms and habitats that serve as a critical landscape linkage and wildlife corridor between the Coast Ranges and Sierra Nevada.

On the San Joaquin Valley floor, the Preserve is a 30-square-mile veritable sea of grasslands with remnant stands of saltbush. These grasslands are home to the endangered San Joaquin kit fox and blunt-nosed leopard lizard as well as one of the largest stands of the endangered Bakersfield cactus. The Preserve’s main wetland is home to the Buena Vista Lake ornate shrew—one of the most endangered mammals in the United States. Rolling grasslands rise from the valley floor, transitioning into classic California blue oak and valley oak savanna with extensive riparian wetlands. The oak savanna ascends into juniper and pinyon forests that vault into stands of ponderosa pine and big cone spruce.

The preserve includes the entire San Emidio Land Grant, once owned by John C. Fremont. Wind Wolves’ rich cultural history includes some of the most noteworthy Native American rock art in North America.

You really don’t want to miss this special opportunity! Join other CAC artists and begin 2022 with an exhilarating outing! RSVP today!
Hosted by Kern County Chapter and Chapter Chair David Gordon.
