This informative, well-organized guide introduces 85 readily accessible sites throughout the Tualatin River Basin, from the River's tributaries in the Coast Range to its confluence with the Willamette River. The detailed site descriptions include directions, maps, and a wealth of information on the plants, wildlife, and natural attractions to be found. Also included are brief features on the flora, fauna, ecology, and history of the area.

Hikers, canoeists, naturalists, birders, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds will find this unique field guide an essential companion as they explore the beautiful, meandering Tualatin River and its environs.
