Torrey Pines Association is deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Jim Karnik in late April, 2017. His artistic legacy lives on!  With Jim, the Torrey Pines Association produced a series of webfilms to highlight the natural history and conservation efforts at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. We invite you to explore Torrey Pines through these short videos and learn  about the people and events that have sustained it. All of these films were created by Jim  as part of his commitment to conservation and preservation of the wild places of Southern California. To view more of Jim's work, visit his website jimkarnikfilms.com. The section specific to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is HERE—18 short films in all! You can also search using his name on vimeo.com. Please view a KPBS news report about Jim's legacy here.
