Santa Cruz County is one of the smallest counties in California. It lies along the northern end of Monterey Bay and is roughly ten miles across, running from the coast to the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It can be roughly divided into four "regions"; the rugged northern forests (mainly Redwood, Douglas Fir, and other conifers), the city of Santa Cruz and surrounding towns, The San Lorenzo River Valley and Bonny Dune hills, and the agricultural lands at the southern end of the county, centered around Watsonville. The following is a list of the plants, animals, and other wildlife I've photographically documented in the county.
