Boating on the Petaluma River

Power Boat Aerial Petaluma River

A power boat creates a long wake on the Petaluma River, Sonoma county, California. Adjacent to the Petaluma River in this aerial photograph is the Petaluma Marsh Wildlife Area, which totals 4,200 acres of tidal salt marsh, mudflats, coastal oak woodlands, and coastal scrub habitats. The habitats support numerous species including willits, curlews, dowitchers, night herons, and black-bellied plovers, migratory birds and deer, raccoons, jackrabbits, and foxes. The wetland in the wildlife area is the largest remaining natural tidal brackish marsh in California.
