NEWS FROM WHF
Our thoughts go out to the many who are affected by wildfires throughout our state.
On a lighter note, this week is Bat Week, an annual celebration throughout the world. Bats are the only mammals that can fly, and they are fantastic pollinators and pest managers. California is home to 25 species of bats,and due to population declines, 17 of those species receive state and federal protection. You can learn more about these fascinating mammals here: www.batweek.org.

WHF recently completed a conservation easement to permanently protect Roberts Ranch, a 241-acre property nestle in the rolling hills of Contra Costa County. The Property provides high-quality habitat for Alameda whipsnake and contains vital oak/bay woodlands, scrub/shrub habitat and wetlands.
