“Out of all the magazine subscriptions I receive every month, I save three: The New Yorker for the writing, National Geographic for the photography, and Bay Nature for both.” — Andrew Harmon, International Bird Rescue
Bay Nature magazine covers the unique habitats and wildlife of the San Francisco Bay Area and the people working to protect them. With excellent writing, gorgeous photography, and delightful wildlife illustrations by celebrated naturalist John Muir Laws, each quarterly issue of Bay Nature is a local treasure to cherish and share with family and friends.
Bay Nature's January-March 2014 issue takes you inside the mysterious world of orcas, outside in a quiet corner of post-fire Mt. Diablo, back into the maps that shaped the East Bay parks and forward into a difficult world for freshwater fish.
For fall 2013, Bay Nature uncovers secrets in the Monterey Shale (under a condor's watchful eye), reveals the natural history of struggling native fish, and walks a breathtaking -- and newly accessible -- stretch of the Mendocino coast. Plus lichens, king tides, and tree frogs!
Bay Nature joins this year’s celebration of "The Year of the Bay" with the publication of "Baylands Reborn: Restoration and Renewal on San Francisco Bay." We also head to Butano State Park, take a close look at poison oak, and more!
The spring 2013 issue takes you to Clear Lake for great birding and kayaking, introduces you to the people helping record and preserve natural soundscapes, helps you learn a more about wildlife tracks and signs, and more!
