State of the Estuary Conference

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



October 10 – 11, 2017
Scottish Rite Center
1547 Lakeside Drive
Oakland, CA

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 are returning 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.

Online registration has now closed. On-site registration will available during the conference.
