Santa Clara County is a juxtaposition of habitats. Located at the southern tip of San Francisco Bay, it is home to San Jose, Silicon Valley, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and numerous other previously small towns that have merged together to form a massive urban and suburban complex at its north end. Even so, there are impressive wildlife refuges along the bay around Palo Alto and Alviso. Heading out of San Jose, the county becomes much more rural with cattle, orchards, and row crop along its southern border. Much of Henry Coe State Park, the second largest state park in California is in Santa Clara County where it preserves a huge expanse of Gabilan Range woodlands. Along its western edge are the cooler, wetter Santa Cruz Mountains with their Redwoods and Douglas Fir forests. Additionally, there are several large open space preserves and county parks that hold impressive arrays of flora and fauna. This is a record of all of the plants, animals, and other wildlife I have photographically documented in Santa Clara County.
