The Bay Nature Institute, based in Berkeley, California, inspires people through media and personal experience to explore and protect the diverse and beautiful natural world of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Bay Nature is a quarterly magazine dedicated to the intelligent and joyful exploration of the natural places, plants, and wildlife of the San Francisco Bay Area. It contains writing, photography, art, and cartography about the natural history of the land and waters of the nine counties ringing the Bay, as well as significant nearby areas (such as the Delta and Monterey Bay).
Neither scientific journal nor travel guide, Bay Nature's aim is to foster a deeper connection between the Bay Area's residents and our surrounding landscapes. We do this by examining local nature from a variety of angles and in a wide range of voices, in a manner that is both accessible and intelligent, serious and playful. We see Bay Nature as a forum that brings together the local environmental, literary, artistic, and political communities, and serves the shared goal of conserving and restoring our natural heritage.
