Test-Run a User’s Guide to Delta Restoration

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 participated in a facilitated test-run 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 and provided feedback on the guide.

This workshop was designed for:
  • Restoration practitioners wondering how their project fits into a larger landscape
  • Delta landowners wondering how to improve wildlife habitat in strategic places
  • Regulators from local government, state and federal agencies wondering about the appropriateness of a permit application
  • Anyone interested in using the findings from the Delta Landscapes Project:

The free workshop was co-hosted by the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy, Delta Stewardship Council’s Delta Science Program, San Francisco Estuary Institute and Water Education Foundation.
