About Us

Since 1994, when we published the first Local Birds of the Peninsula guide, the word “LOCAL” in our name has always been key.  Local Birds, Inc./Local Pocket-Guides has benefited from the support of so many, allowing us to produce the most complete, longest lasting, user-friendly pocket-guides to nature science. All of our products are created specifically for you (see full list).

We have received numerous statewide awards and recognition for our work, but this is only a reflection of collaborative efforts with many other like-minded volunteers.

My family and circle of friends has grown from our continuing love for the natural world, and from knowing that with your help we can make an impact locally.  You can join us in our desire to turn the outdoors into fun for everyone, by simply sharing our local products with friends.

We are always interested in hearing from you with ideas as to how we can do more. After more than twenty-three years of business, we continue to rely on your individual feedback and support, which means the world to us.

Truly yours,

Mike Spence
