Summer 2023


This summer, Bay Nature introduces a new project exploring the impacts of the astonishing amount of federal funding flowing to Bay Area nature: we’re calling it Wild Billions. We listen to Pacific chorus frogs: ribbit! We talk with farmers about how groundwater scarcity is reshaping California’s Central Valley. We float with the strange babies that become tidepool denizens, hear the crackling of a frozen Yosemite lake, find out what pelicans have in common with humpbacks, and learn why the tarantula hawk wasp is among the world’s baddest moms.
