Save the Date! State of the Estuary “Summit”, Friday October 1st, 2021. Details to come.

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.

During our 2019 Conference, we were able to bring new topics into the conversation on the health of the estuary, focusing on how public health, homelessness, green space, and inclusive design are all deeply tied into the decisions we make around preserving the estuary. The pandemic and worsening social and environmental injustices have only served to highlight these issues, and we recognize the need to bring equity and the human dimension to the forefront of our conference efforts.

On October 1st, the Estuary Partnership will be holding a free, fully virtual, one-day State of the Estuary “Summit” that spotlights environmental justice, community engagement, and climate resilience, amongst other critical and timely topics. We hope that you join us for this exciting event.
