Conservation Lands Network Report Released

Grassland of the Hamilton range

We’re celebrating the release of the Bay Area Open Space Council’s Conservation Lands Network Report, which helps identify the next million acres that would be more suitable for habitat protection in the Bay Area.  As a professional ecologist I sat on the Steering Committee and Vegetation workgroup of this project. It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by so many luminaries and brilliant thinkers.

Additionally, I also contributed photos to the publication to help provide depth and detail to the project and the lands it hopes to protect.  Here are a few Bay Area natural shots that sing the praises of our wonderfully complex and well-loved home.
