Outdoor California

Published bimonthly by the California Department of Fish and Game, this nonprofit magazine provides readers with access and insight into California’s wildlife and wildlands, and the people who work to protect and maintain those resources. Call editor Troy Swauger with story ideas at 916-322-8911 or e-mail queries to him at tswauger@dfg.ca.gov. All features should be related to wildlife, natural areas, reserves or sanctuaries in California. Stories should reflect how the Department of Fish and Game is involved in the topic, whether through hands-on efforts or through monitoring, funding or in an advisory capacity. The magazine buys one-time publication rights and authors and photographers retain the reprint rights. Pay ranges from $250 to $1,000 for stories and $75 to $400 for photos.
