Nature’s Canvas: Birds and their Wild Colors
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm MST$18
Join us at Denver Museum of Nature and Science for a special presentation by Curator of Ornithology at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Dr. Allison Shultz as she delves into the world of feathers and their colors. During her talk, she will discuss why color needs to be studied from a bird’s perspective rather a human one, and how different forces have shaped the multitude of colors and patterns that we observe today. Learn of her current work on the mechanisms underlying the great diversity of colors in birds.
Dr. Allison Shultz is Assistant Curator of the Ornithology Department at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. With her research, she seeks to understand the evolution of bird diversity, focusing on two major areas: how birds are responding to human-caused environmental changes, and how and why bird colors evolve. Dr. Shultz is originally from Southern California, and was excited to get a job so close to home. She received her PhD from Harvard University, MS from San Diego State University, and BA from the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to her research, Dr. Shultz is passionate about increasing diversity, inclusion, access and equity in the sciences, and inspiring a love of nature in everyone.
