Article in Bay Nature

Cris and Wayne

We have long been fans of Bay Nature, a lively publication serving naturalists in the San Francisco Bay Area. So, we were delighted when Dan Rademcher, Editorial Director for Bay Nature, approached us to develop an article based on Hidden Ecologies.


After several pleasant meetings, a fine Sunday hike to the Weep, and drafts aplenty, our article “Out at the WEEP – a curious search for life in a ditch” is now on the newsstands in the current issue of Bay Nature. Read on to learn about a public hike to the Weep later this month.

If you are not familiar with Bay Nature I encourage you to visit their web site of better yet subscribe to this fine magazine. The current issue Bay Nature is now out in the newsstands for $5.95 and an annual subscription runs $21.95. There is something new to learn about the Bay Area in each issue. Now that we have worked with Dan we know why the quality of the writing and imagery is so high for Dan is a talented and supportive editor.

Bay Nature has organized a hike out to the Weep for Saturday, July 18, 2009 from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

“Microbiologist Wayne Lanier and kite photographer Cris Benton will lead us out to their favorite spot at the South Bay salt ponds, unassuming drainage ditch they have dubbed “The Weep.”
