The mountains of Southern California are islands of biodiversity, rising from the sea of desert around them. These "sky islands" are home to many lizards, plants, and other creatures found nowhere else on Earth.
Follow their story through hundreds of thousands of years of changing climate to see how they reached the places we find them today, see how unprecedented new climate shifts are threatening them in the present, and learn what you can do to help build a resilient future for lizards, plants, (and everyone else!)
Presented by Colin Barrows, a Coachella Valley naturalist with the Mt. San Jacinto Natural History Association and CactusToCloud, who advocates for the conservation of open spaces and native species by working with local agencies to advance habitat conservation, recreational trails planning, and promote community science to grow public understanding and appreciation of desert ecosystems.
