The release of the long awaited and highly anticipated San Bruno Mountain: A Guide to the Flora & Fauna, researched and written by CNPS Yerba Buena Chapter board members Doug Allshouse and David Nelson!

From the publisher, Heyday: “San Bruno Mountain, located in the center of the San Francisco Bay Area, is a four-square-mile global treasure—a natural preserve touted by biologist E. O. Wilson as one of the world’s rare biodiversity hot spots. Bathed in fog and wind and preserved from destruction by the fierce work of local conservationists, this mountain offers visitors a glimpse of what San Francisco looked like before colonization. Drawing on years of visits, observations, and research to offer a comprehensive flora of San Bruno Mountain and its endangered species, conservationists Doug Allshouse and David L. Nelson help us understand this unique and precious place from the point of view of the plants in this one-of-a-kind field guide.
