Outstanding Environmental Project Awards
Every two years, Friends of the San Francisco Estuary presents awards to outstanding environmental projects that benefit the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary and its watersheds. These awards are given out at the biennial State of the Estuary Conference. Qualified projects significantly benefit the Estuary; show measurable results, and have not been externally mandated (for example, to resolve an enforcement action). Projects represent diverse locations, environmental categories, and project sponsors. Nominated projects must fall into one or more of the project categories in the Estuary Partnership’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan, the Bay Area’s blueprint for a healthy and resilient Estuary:
- Aquatic Resources
- Wetlands Management
- Water Use
- Pollution Prevention and Reduction
- Dredging and Waterway Modification
- Land Use and Watershed Management
- Public Involvement and Education
- Research and Monitoring
These projects showcase the value of partnership in making remarkable contributions to the health and resilience of the San Francisco Bay‐Delta Estuary. The Outstanding Environmental Project awards are presented by Friends of the San Francisco Estuary, a non‐profit organization dedicated to the enhancement, protection, and restoration of the San Francisco Bay‐Delta Estuary.
