Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide Endorsements —

The Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide is a ‘must have’ for both the serious and casual nature lover, as well as for those interested in the history, preservation and natural setting of our Petaluma Watershed. As the Bay Area’s wetlands are disappearing, our own backyard provides all of us with almost 150 square miles of wetlands, which Parker and Shribbs have documented in the most complete and accessible reference book on this topic to date.

—Teresa Barrett, Mayor of Petaluma

The comprehensive Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide provides outdoor enthusiasts with a locally focused and beautifully photographed compilation of our Petaluma wetlands and local wildlife. This easy-to-use field guide is perfect for hikers, bikers, birders, and families, and includes information about protecting our water systems, wetlands, parks, and wildlife.

—Congressman Jared Huffman’s Office

The Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide is a great reference for any wetland area in the San Francisco Bay Area! It is appropriate for teachers, students, amateur naturalists and anyone who enjoys the outdoors!  It is a jewel that the Petaluma Wetlands Alliance Committee should be very proud of.

—Lisa Hug, Local Naturalist and Birding Guide

My third grade students and I have participated in PWA’s Environmental Education program for several years. The Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide offers an opportunity to deepen our connection to, and appreciation for, our beautiful Petaluma wetlands as we learn about it from a historical perspective, as well as its current offerings.  Both kids and adults alike can easily access the wealth of information showcased in this well-organized treasure trove of Shollenberger’s plant and animal gems. I’m excited to bring this tool into the classroom as we continue to encourage our young naturalists to become environmental stewards in our community. Thank you PWA for this book.

—Angela Werner, 3rd Grade Teacher, McDowell School

Wetlands are a vital part of our river ecosystem in Petaluma. I’m pleased to endorse the Petaluma Wetlands Field Guide, as it will be a valuable teaching tool for our community and the next generation of river stewards.

—David Rabbitt, Second District Sonoma County Supervisor
