White Tank Mountains

Field Guide

Reach for your White Tank Mountains Field Guide when you want to identify native plants or animals.  Local Waddell historian and author Karen Krause recently published the pocket guide and has generously donated all proceeds to benefit the White Tank Mountains Conservancy.  Initial printing costs were covered by a grant from Arizona Public Service (APS).

The 100+ page field guide contains120 beautiful color photographs and short descriptions of the most common species of plants and animals that visitors may encounter in our regional parks.












Supported by a $6,647 grant from APS,  the guide went on sale at a book signing on November 24 at the White Tank Library. It can be purchased online for $10 plus $5 shipping.


The guides will also be available for sale at all WTMC outreach events.  Sales at the White Tank Mountains Regional Park Nature Center are coming soon.  Be sure to ask when visiting.

Though sold in hard copy only for now,  Krause has big plans for an interactive, digital version of the guide that will include bird and animal sounds as well as links to other pertinent information. 

The proceeds from the book will contribute to the long-term conservation of the cultural and natural resources of the White Tanks and to the experience of mountain visitors.
