Sierra Foothills Nature Guide

A guide to the biology and ecology of the Sierra College Nature Trail.

"The key to a good local field guide is its ability to help its readers discover unique aspects of the locally encountered ecosystems. By presenting us with the variety of plants and animals regularly seen in this area plus important natural history information, the Sierra Foothills Nature Guide has succeeded in creating a useful and educational local field guide. It will be an invaluable resource for local biologists, students or anyone who enjoys spending a little time observing and enjoying the Placer County foothills." - Susan Ramones, Wildlife Biologist, ECORP Consulting Inc.
