Carson Jeffres, Ph.D., Field and Lab Director, UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences

 

Dr. Carson Jeffres will discuss how, historically, fish utilized habitats in the Central Valley.  However, due to development, their life histories are now disconnected from  the habitat that is currently available. Dr. Jeffres will illustrate how restoration of these connections can reconcile fish with their habitat.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
