Wetlands

Guadalcanal Village and Cullinan Ranch wetlands
Guadalcanal Village and Cullinan Ranch used to be among my favorite places to photograph. Guadalcanal Village, owned by the California Department of Transportation, has been used as a mitigation site. It’s in northern California at the northern end of Mare Island, just off Hwy 37. The site was restored to tidal influence on October 31, 2001. Cullinan Ranch, abutting Guadalcanal Village, was restored to tidal influence January, 2015.

An article about pickleweed by Ron Sullivan and Joe Eaton in The San Francisco Chronicle featured one of my photos.

Archaea is on a separate page due to its unique nature. The Archaea was destroyed by the NWR in Sept 2016.
