Watershed Guide: A Companion to Living Here by the Frisco Bay Mussel Group (1977)

Watershed Guide: A Companion to Living Here was created by the Frisco Bay Mussel Group and one of the earliest publications of the group. The Frisco Bay Mussel Group was started in 1976 by Judy Goldhaft and Peter Berg and gathered members of environmental groups to discuss reinhabitation of the San Francisco Bay Area. They invited members of the different environmental organizations in the Bay Area to present efforts they were undertaking and to discuss. Together, the group successfully fought the California Water Project Plan to divert more Sacramento River water to the San Joaquin Valley and Southern California and published Watershed Guide and Living Here to broaden local ecological consciousness of the Bay Area. The Watershed Guide was the first bioregional map published by Judy & Peter.
