13th Biennial State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference
October 10 – 11, 2017
Scottish Rite Center
1547 Lakeside Drive
Every two years, the Partnership brings a focus on the management and ecological health of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The State of the Estuary Conference showcases the latest information about the estuary’s changing watersheds, impacts from major stressors, recovery programs for species and habitats, and emerging challenges.
This year we are returning to the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, where we hosted the 2007 State of the Estuary Conference. The Scottish Rite Center, built in 1927, is a stunning building on the shore of beautiful Lake Merritt.
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)
