State of the Estuary Conference

The 14th Biennial State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference was held October 21 – 22, 2019 at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, CA.

The 14th Biennial State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference was held October 21 – 22, 2019 at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, CA. 

Every two years, the Estuary Partnership brings a focus to the management and ecological health of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary.  The State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference showcases the latest information about the region’s work to sustain and improve the estuary’s habitats, living resources, water quality, climate resilience, and environmental stewardship. 

In October we returned to the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, where we hosted the 2007 and 2017 State of the Estuary Conferences. 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 have attended each conference.

New for this year, we are pleased to announce the Exploratorium’s interactive arts showcase for the conference entitled: Field Station: Art & Artifacts from the Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery. Find details here. 

Thank you for your poster abstract and award nomination submissions. Stay tuned for more highlights from the conference.
