State of the Estuary Conference

The 13th Biennial State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference was held October 10 – 11, 2017 at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, CA.



The 13th Biennial State of the Estuary Conference was held October 10-11, 2017.

Every two years, the Partnership brings a focus on the management and ecological health of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary.  The State of the Estuary Conference showcases the latest information about the estuary’s changing watersheds, impacts from major stressors, recovery programs for species and habitats, and emerging challenges.

This year we returned to the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, where we hosted the 2007 State of the Estuary Conference. The Scottish Rite Center, built in 1927, is a stunning building on the shore of beautiful Lake Merritt. Over 800 people from all over the Bay, Delta, and beyond attended the conference.
