Brown Bag - Habitat Characteristics that Made Delta Landscapes Unique: Perspectives for Ecosystem Restoration
Wednesday April 20, 2011, 12 noon – 1 p.m.
Cal EPA building 1st Floor: Training Room 1, East and West
1001 “I” Street, Sacramento CA 95814
The Delta Science Program Brown Bag Series presents Robin Grossinger and Alison Whipple of the Aquatic Science Center to discuss their ongoing collaborative work with the California Department of Fish and Game to map and document habitats of the Delta circa 1850. Habitat mosaics and characteristics will be discussed within their landscape context in order to compare and contrast three large-scale Delta landscape types: flood basins (north Delta), tidal islands (central Delta), and distributary rivers (south Delta).
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)
