Putah Creek Guidebook

The guidebook provided public education and public access information for the Lower Putah Creek Watershed.

The multi-organization project team developed content covering a range of topics including the history, ecology, wildlife, stewardship, and public access points within the Lower Putah Creek Watershed.

As graphic designer for the project, Lorrie Jo Williams designed the guidebook, as well as creating original illustrations and photography. Ms. Williams also conducted a focus group of students in the target audience to test the guidebook’s usefulness.
