Nevada Historical Society presents High Noon with Neal Cobb Spring Series: Playa Life: Journey to Inner Space

Live on Facebook and Zoom

Nevada Historical Society presents High Noon with Neal Cobb, a wonderful history series that delves into fascinating Nevada topics with local experts. Neal Cobb is a passionate historian and honorary curator for the Nevada Historical Society. He loves all things Nevada. Join Neal Cobb and our monthly speakers as we explore interesting topics and join in the audience conversations.

Join us while we take a journey through the surprising life forms that have developed from the Black Rock, Toulon, and 4-Mile playas during the summers of 2021 and 2022. The Great Playa Designer has outdone itself with some of these new features. This continuing playa project will dispel the idea that playas are lifeless, boring, meaningless landscapes. They are full of life, both flora and fauna.

Photo Title: Thin layer of algae lifted from the soil of the Black Rock playa by methane bubbles.

April Speaker: Bob Goodman

Bob Goodman's education and career with public land management continues to this day as he combines his knowledge of wild places with his photographic endeavors to bring them to others that may not be able to personally experience them.

Goodman’s photography and writing has been published in many magazines, books, and calendars.  He has taught photography to governmental agencies and workshops. Goodman has been a public speaker for over 59 years, including being the featured speaker at two Professional Photographers of America conventions.

Goodman worked with the National Geographic Magazine on a two-year special assignment.  He volunteered and served on the Ethics Committee of the North American Nature Photographers Association and served as the AV Specialist with the Bureau of Land Management for the State of Nevada for ten years.
