About the Estuary Partnership

The San Francisco Estuary Partnership is a collaborative regional program of resource agencies, non-profits, citizens, and scientists working to protect, restore, and enhance water quality and fish and wildlife habitat in and around the San Francisco Bay Delta Estuary. Working cooperatively, we share information and resources that result in studies, projects, and programs that improve the Estuary and communicate its value and needs to the public. The Association of Bay Area Governments is the home agency for Partnership staff and finances. Our offices are located at the Bay Area Metro Center in San Francisco. Please see our Implementation Committee meeting dates and materials here.

Estuary News Magazine


Clouds reflected in flooded wetland

ESTUARY News was an independent regional magazine published in the public interest by the San Francisco Estuary Partnership and its myriad partners around the Bay and Delta between 1992 and 2023. Written by professional, independent journalists, it provided in-depth, silo-crossing coverage of the environmental, restoration, and climate adaptation issues of our time.
