Endangered Species in Our Backyard

The California tiger salamander, listed as “threatened” both by the state and federal governments, used to range throughout the state but is now found only in our coastal mountain ranges and a few other places.  You have to drive to Sonoma County to see the Sonoma sunshine flower, listed as “endangered” in California. Photo: Dr. Margaret Mantor
