April-June 2010

In this issue, we introduce you to the secretive mountain lions that live in the Bay Area, to the past and present ecology of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and some of the possibilities for its future, to western pond turtles (the only native turtles on the Pacific Coast of North America), to the ruggedly beautiful Palisades of Napa County, and to an extinct plant that was rediscovered living alongside a busy San Francisco freeway.
