Highlighting areas in the Wildwood Canyon Open Space impacted by the 2015 Calgrove Fire, “Wildwood Canyon: The Resilience of Nature,” a photography exhibit by artist Kristina Jacob, showcases photographs capturing the natural phenomenon of fire and its impact on open space and native species that inhabit the area. The exhibit will be on display from September 26, 2017 through January 24, 2018 at the Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library located at 18601 Soledad Canyon Road.

“While fire is a natural part of the Southern California ecosystem, it can have devastating effects for the area it burns,” says Jacob.  The Calgrove Fire of 2015 was a fast-moving brush fire that ignited along the Interstate 5 Freeway near Calgrove Boulevard and spread through areas of Santa Clarita Valley, including the Wildwood Canyon Open Space. 

On Tuesday, October 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. at the Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library, residents are invited to a special artist discussion with Kristina Jacob who will be discussing the effects of wildfires on open spaces in Santa Clarita.

Jacob is an avid photographer who loves to blend her geographic background with photography. The Los Angeles-based photographer moves from macro shots of flowers to broad landscape shots as she rebuilds a unique view of the world around her. Since picking up her first SLR camera years ago, she hasn’t stopped exploring life, nature and architecture through her lens. To learn more about Jacob and her photography, please visit
