Doug Wirtz’s mariposa lily

The California Department of Fish & Wildlife put a "spotlight" on Doug Wirtz, our long-time volunteer photographer who has amassed thousands of images of Jepson Prairie Preserve and other Solano Land Trust properties.

"Becoming a photographer requires a camera and the operator," said Doug during his interview with CDFW. "The beauty of digital photography is that you can see your shot instantly, adjust, and retake until you get your settings right."
