Bay Delta Conference @ Sacramento Convention Center
Sep 10 – Nov 10 all-day

10th Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference is a forum for presenting technical analyses and results relevant to the Delta Science Program’s mission to provide the best possible, unbiased, science-based information for water and environmental decision-making in the Bay-Delta system. The goal of the conference is to offer new information and syntheses to the broad community of scientists, engineers, resource managers, and stakeholders working on Bay-Delta issues.

The conference program will feature oral and poster presentations that deliver scientific information and ideas relevant to the topic sessions. This year’s conference theme is “Our Estuary at an Intersection”.  Intersections are decision points and places where crossroads meet. The management of the Bay-Delta ecosystem sits at the crossroads of geography, ecology, economy, culture, and resource management.  Navigating the intersection has direct implications for statewide water supply and efforts to improve the aquatic ecosystem for fisheries, recreation, and tourism. Achieving these goals requires science that addresses the intersection of geographical, ecological, physical, and social considerations in order to build long-term, resilient solutions.

ABSTRACTS DUE: 23 April 2018

9th National Summit on Coastal and Estuarine Restoration and Management @ Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center
Dec 8 – Dec 13 all-day

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

Restore America’s Estuaries (RAE) and the Coastal States Organization (CSO) proudly present the 9th National Summit, which will bring together the coastal restoration and management communities for an integrated discussion to explore issues, solutions, and lessons learned in their work. The Summit will provide timely and much-needed attention to the challenges and opportunities for coastal and estuarine restoration and management. It will bring together a unique blend of people who are involved in policy, science, strategy, business, and on-the-ground restoration and management.

The Summit Program will address all aspects of coastal and estuarine restoration and management, in all ecosystems, at all scales, and in all regions, including the Great Lakes and international locales. These topics are crucial as coastal communities pursue new, more robust strategies to effectively manage, protect, and restore their resources in a changing climate. Ensuring these resources, and the communities that rely on them, are resilient now and into the future will be a particular focus.

SUMMIT AUDIENCE

The Summit is an international gathering encompassing all disciplines within the coastal and estuarine restoration and management communities. RAE and CSO will work with 200 partnering and supporting organizations to develop and host the Summit and we anticipate more than 1,300 attendees from the restoration and management communities: non-profit and community organizations, Indian Country, Indigenous Peoples, academic and research institutions, businesses with an interest in the coast, and agencies from all levels of government. Restoration and management practitioners, citizens and community leaders, consultants, scientists, educators, planners, engineers, students, volunteers, philanthropists, program managers, field staff, contractors, regulators, and others involved in restoration and management efforts are expected and encouraged to participate.

SUMMIT THEME – Investing In Our Coasts: Environment, Economy, Culture

America’s coasts continue to be a focal point for gauging our nation’s well-being on many fronts. They highlight the challenging juxtaposition between bounty and scarcity, urban and rural, impacted and pristine. Combined, they represent a patchwork of successes, opportunities, and lessons learned. The Summit theme explores the wide variety of roles our coasts play, ranging from economic to environmental to cultural. People – and companies – are drawn to the coast for a range of reasons, most of which have merit in their own right. When these goals align, then management and restoration can proceed in relative harmony. It is when they do not align that challenges become more difficult. Interwoven throughout this theme is the understanding that a changing climate and all that goes with it (including sea-level rise and Great Lakes level fluctuation) play a substantial role. In these times, we cannot have a conversation about the future of our coasts without keeping in mind the importance of what the future may hold. How we choose to manage and invest in our coasts, including the communities and ecosystems within them, will have profound impacts to future generations. The Summit will provide a forum for dynamic, thoughtful, and insightful discussions as to what has occurred, what is happening now, and how that knowledge should frame our decisions moving forward.

Causes of mortality of California Ridgway’s rails

Causes of mortality of California Ridgway’s rails

Studies of endangered California Ridgway’s rails in tidal marshes of San Francisco Bay indicated that predation accounted for 98% of identified deaths and avian predators were responsible for 64%. More deaths occurred on high tides during daylight hours, and rails may benefit from management that decreases their vulnerability to avian predators such as removing artificial perches or providing high tide refuges. See Casazza et al. (2017) on the Science submenu under References.
