Description:

Embark on a coastal adventure with Sea Forager tour guide, sustainable fishmonger, and author of The Sea Forager’s Guide to the Northern California Coast, Kirk Lombard. Lombard combines a startling depth of knowledge with wry humor and colorful storytelling to guide readers’ quests to hook fish, dig clams, and pick seaweed for themselves. Lombard, a former staff member at the state Department of Fish and Game and founder of the foraging tour company/seafood delivery service Sea Forager Seafood, insists that his readers follow all regulations and encourages sustainable practices above and beyond what the State of California requires. Leighton Kelly’s stunning, occasionally idiosyncratic illustrations complement practical instructions for gathering a variety of fish and seafood and delicious recipes for what to do with each catch. Doors open at 6:45pm and the talk will begin at 7 pm. Light refreshments provided. Pre-registration encouraged. $12 General | $6 Children | Members 50% off.
