BayNature.Org offers free copies of the new John Hart publication on the past and future of the Delta
March 4, 2010 -- It’s the subject of countless white papers, editorials, and legislative debates; it’s at the heart of California’s endless water wars; and its future depends in part on the outcome of a measure on the November 2010 state ballot. But how well do people really know the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, this 1,000 square-mile patchwork of islands, sloughs, wetlands, and farmlands at the eastern edge of the Bay Area? What is at stake in all of this controversy?
The Once and Future Delta from Bay Nature magazine is a 16-page full-color editorial supplement that tells the story of the Delta ecosystem—past, present, and future—in a way that is timely, attractive, and accessible for a general audience. “Once and Future Delta” provides the context for understanding the current debates while introducing this fascinating and complex landscape at the heart of the San Francisco Estuary.
This compelling and informative editorial supplement features text by veteran Bay Area environmental writer John Hart, original artwork, a new centerfold map of the region, and full-color photography of Delta landscapes and wildlife. This timely publication about a significant current issue will be published on April 1, 2010.
Thanks to the generosity of our project funders, we are able to offer interested organizations free copies of “Once and Future Delta,” so that you can share it with your constituents at no cost.
To apply for copies click here to download the form and return it by March 12. Supplies are limited, so please indicate on the form how many copies you can actually use.
If your organization would like more copies than we can supply for free, we can offer you the opportunity to purchase copies at cost ($0.45 each), if you order prior to printing. Just download the form here and fill out sections II and III. The form may be used to request both free and paid copies.
