The looming bulk of Mount Hamilton is a familiar sight to anyone driving Highway 101 through the Santa Clara Valley. At 4,196 feet, it's the tallest peak visible from the shores of San Francisco Bay. This is the most expansive wild landscape in the Bay Area: roughly 700,000 acres of public parks, university and conservancy reserves, and private ranches. Now it's also become a living laboratory for studying the affects of climate change.

Graham Chisholm is a powerhouse for conservation in California. He's director of Audubon California, used to run the Nature Conservancy's California programs, has co-authored a couple of birding guides, and even has a Ph.D. in political science from UC Berkeley. Not too shabby!
