Erica Fielder

If you drink water from your tap, in just seven days that water will replace the fluids in your body. You become a tributary of your home watershed. For 30 years I have merged art and natural history to convey ecological ideas to the public.

 The Bird Feeder Hat teaches visitors how to locate and protect their watersheds. The Migration Maker, made with biology students of bronze, concrete and steel, is a calendar of local migratory patterns. The Salmon Skin Cape implies that we are encloaked by our home watershed. In addition, my interpretive panels in parks and preserves educate about habitat. Commissions: Oakland, International Airport, California State Parks, State Coastal Conservancy. MFA in Visual Art, Adjunct Professor in environmental ethics.
