Need field guides for environmental and nature activities?

The National Audubon Society Field Guides are now available on the World Wide Web at Web users can simply enter their zip code, or the zip code of an intended destination, and receive a free, customized photographic guide to the wildlife in their area. Guides to birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians are currently available, and guides to butterflies, trees, and wildflowers will be released later this year.

Species lists are available for more then 42,000 zip codes in the continental United States and Alaska. Each local guide is complete with color photographs and descriptions. Users can get a complete guide to all the species in an area or view only the most common species. For birds, guides are available by season, so users can discover which birds inhabit their area during spring, summer, or winter.
