Summer 2013

July-September 2013, Year of the Bay issue, salt marsh harvest mouse

Bay Nature Institute joins this year’s celebration of “The Year of the Bay” with the publication of a special 16-page insert by award-winning environmental journalist Ariel Rubissow Okamoto. Baylands Reborn: Restoration and Renewal on San Francisco Bay traces the development of the art and science of wetland restoration around the Bay and looks at the enormous benefits for wildlife and society that the largest wetland restoration initiatives on the west coast have produced.

This issue also features the winners of our “Fun on the Bay” photo contest, and showcases the otherworldly realm of Bay plankton with microscope photos from acclaimed National Geographic photographer David Liittschwager. Beyond the Bay, we’re profiling the oft-heard but not-often-seen wrentit, following fog researchers into the redwoods, and visiting Butano State Park, Big Basin’s lesser-known sibling.
