Foundation Event

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.

Land Subsidence in the San Joaquin Valley
Free Briefing to be held in Fresno

Land subsidence caused by groundwater pumping has been a problem for decades in the San Joaquin Valley, but an increased reliance on aquifers during the last decade has resulted in subsidence rates in excess of a foot per year in some parts of the region.

Headwaters Tour 2017
Field Trip (NEW DATE)

Sixty percent of California’s developed water supply originates high in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Our water supply is largely dependent on the health of our Sierra forests, which are suffering from ecosystem degradation, drought, wildfires and widespread tree mortality. Join us as we head into the foothills and the mountains to examine water issues that happen upstream but have dramatic impacts downstream and throughout the state.

San Joaquin River Restoration Tour 2017
Field Trip

Participants of this tour snake along the San Joaquin River to learn firsthand about one of the nation’s largest and most expensive river restoration plans.

The San Joaquin River was the focus of one of the most contentious legal battles in California water history, ending in a 2006 settlement between the federal government, Friant Water Users Authority and a coalition of environmental groups.
