Please note that San Diego County has moved into high risk for community spread of COVID-19. Due to this status, the National Park Service requires all people to wear a mask inside a federal building. We will have masks available to you at the event.

How important is coastal fog? To San Diego’s native plants, coastal fog can be a lifeline – in the local hot, dry climate many plants harvest this water source for survival. In this Naturally Speaking science talk, join environmental scientist Taro Katayama and geoscientist Brent Wilder to learn more about the connection between plants and fog, how we measure this elusive moisture, and what trends might be shifting in a changing world.
