October-December 2013

Northern California’s native fish may be down — but they’re not out, as Glen Martin writes in Bay Nature’s fall 2013 issue.

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!
