Tracking measurable success on efforts across California to preserve and connect our Parks & Wildlife Corridors



WE POST NEWS THREE WAYS:
1. long detailed stories on blogspot (here!)
2. short messages on Twitter
3. automated news feeds from CA enviro websites in the right-hand column which change frequently and are not archived by our website (that's why we now have a twitter account to permanently capture the memorable feeds)

Free digital maps of local hike spots from the feds...

-
Feds launch excellent free topo maps website


http://store.usgs.gov/b2c_usgs/usgs/maplocator/(xcm=r3standardpitrex_prd&layout=6_1_61_50_2&uiarea=2&ctype=areaDetails&carea=%24ROOT)/.do

This site is powered by google, and after you click on the spot on the map you are seeking, (and you must click repeatedly to zoom in) you can choose between standard maps, aerial photos or topographic contour maps, or a hybrid.

You can also download the maps so you can play with them or customize them as you like.
