This sea­son guests heard from the mak­ers, doers and dream­ers who are cre­at­ing tomorrow’s sci­en­tific com­mu­nity today. June 5th had tours by Richard Smart on how cit­i­zen sci­en­tists are “Find­ing L.A.’s Hid­den Wildlife One Photo at a Time.” Guests also enjoyed Magic of Math with Arthur Ben­jamin, who com­bines math­e­mat­ics and magic to help make it more fun and eas­ier to under­stand. Lastly, there was a dis­cus­sion with Rick Bon­ney on “How Bird Watch­ers Can Save the World.” Out­side per­for­mances in the Nature Gar­dens included KCRW DJ Raul Cam­pos, Avid Dancer, Chi­cano Bat­man, Hanni El Khatib, and DJ sets by Cap­tain Planet.
