East Bay Birds, Butterflies, Wildlife: UCBG Faunal Guide

The University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley has published a foldout guide to illustrate the wealth of birds, butterflies, and wildlife inhabiting the East Bay Hills... "bounded by Hayward and Wildcat earthquake faults... of the Pacific Coast Range."

Both trained zoologists, Garden Director, Paul Licht and Chris Carmichael, Associate Director of Collections & Horticulture, have created an informative, beautifully produced, pocket-size and plasticized pamphlet to enhance any area outing you might undertake.

The guide is available in the UCB Garden Shop...


  1. Local local guides are the very best! Glad to know of this one. I use guides to the Santa Cruz mountains and it's so helpful to eliminate all the non-possible possibilities that can be confusing with more general guides!

  2. Hi CM
    Yes, this one will be a gem to have on-hand!
