My mission is to create pocket-size, waterproof, quick reference guides that are easy-to-use and scientifically accurate in each subject of nature. What makes Quick Reference guides stand out is our team of expert photographers, illustrators and naturalists. All of our guides are custom designed to best represent the flora or fauna of each specific geographic region.

We strive to honor nature by printing every QRP guide using paper from certified managed forests with recycled content and vegetable inks. All of our guides are printed in the USA.

It gives me great personal joy to take my passion for nature and apply it to educating others in a simple, accurate, and accessible format. We hope you’ll check back often as we continue to create new titles. We encourage you to get out and explore—and take us with you!
