Friends of the Estuary logo

Friends of the San Francisco Estuary will present awards to outstanding environmental projects that benefit the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary and its watersheds at the 13th biennial State of the Estuary Conference, October 10-11, 2017.  These projects showcase the value of partnership in making remarkable contributions to the health and resilience of the San Francisco Bay‐Delta Estuary.

Nominated projects must significantly benefit the Estuary; be completed or show measurable results, and have not been externally mandated (for example, to resolve an enforcement action). Projects should further the goals and objectives of the 2016 Estuary Blueprint (Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan). Selected projects will represent diverse locations, environmental categories, and project sponsors.

Nominations should be no longer than 2 pages in length, and include the following information:

  • Project name and location
  • Name of implementing organization
  • Project representative (name, address, phone number, email)
  • Brief description of the project and how it benefits the Bay-Delta
  • Estuary Blueprint goal or objective met by the project, including specific action where applicable
  • Name and contact information of the person making the nomination
