California | USA | International | About Bioregions

By no means a complete list, these sites were chosen because of their thoroughness in covering their bioregion or watershed, or because they included information useful to those in other bioregions. See how other bioregions think of themselves.

California regions
Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks. "In the old days, every neighborhood had a creek; the secret is they still do..." (from their page) This watershed site is one of our neighbors. An unusual urban guide.
Santa Cruz Mountain Bioregional Almanac. Lots of biological info on that bioregion--includes a bibliography.

US regions

Organized roughly west to east.

Wisconsin-Illinois Upper Des Plaines River Ecosystem Partnership. Rather terse, very governmental, but it has some interesting ecological links.
