North Bay Waterways

Sonoma State University Waterways

Sonoma State University is home to lakes, a creek, and—although not literally on the campus itself—two nature preserves.

Springs, Wetlands, & Geysers

Hundreds of wetlands, springs, and geysers dot the landscape of the North Bay.

Creeks & Rivers

The North Bay is home to dozens of creeks and to the Petaluma River, the Russian River, and the Eel River.

Coastal Waters & Activism

The coastline of northern California is nationally known for its beauty and for the activism that has helped to preserve it.

Watershed Stories

The story of Sonoma County waterways and a creative collage of water in its many forms highlight this section.

Notable North Bay Women


Extraordinary women of California’s North Bay region have enriched their communities with significant contributions as pioneers, teachers, philanthropists, activists, political leaders, explorers, anthropologists, writers and artists, among other professions.

Their endeavors, professional and personal, shaped our regional history and continue to have an enormous impact on the development of the region.

Explore this online exhibit and get to know some of the important women of the North Bay, both past and present.

The Sonoma State University Library Special Collections Department has more information in its archives on many of these important figures, including the Gaye LeBaron Collection, with oral histories and documents, the Lynn Woolsey Congressional Papers, and the Brenda Starr Comic Collection created by Dale Messick.
