The 14th Biennial State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference was held October 21 – 22, 2019 at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, CA. Thank you to all who attended and made this years’ event exceptional.

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.
