Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Executive Briefing, held each spring in Sacramento, features speakers from stakeholder groups, the Legislature and governmental agencies who play important roles in making policy decisions about water. Past conferences have focused on climate change, the Delta, flood management and drought. Many of these conferences are conducted in partnership with state agencies and other organizations.

Test-Run a User’s Guide to Delta Restoration
FREE July 25 Delta Landscapes Workshop

The Delta Landscapes Project (funded by California Department of Fish & Wildlife) offers new insights into the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, examining how to achieve better restoration outcomes by understanding how the natural systems originally functioned.

Given the complexities of the restoration efforts and the large number of agencies and stakeholders involved, in-person dialog among restoration practitioners, landowners and regulators is necessary to adapt the scientific findings into a usable framework for on-the-ground decision-making.

At this Delta Landscapes briefing, participants will test-run and provide feedback on a user’s guide that can be used to integrate the technical findings of the Delta Landscapes Project for use by the Delta community.
