Delta Public Lands Strategy – Now Available for Public Comment
The Delta Public Lands Strategy – Guidance for Conservation and Sustainability across the West, Central, and Northeast Delta is now available for public comment (updated 1/22/19).
Through 2018, the Delta Conservancy coordinated a public planning process to develop a high-level, integrated conservation strategy for publicly-funded lands in the west, central, and northeast Delta (see map). This collaborative planning process brought together landowners, agencies, and interested stakeholders to develop a high-level strategy for connecting investments in habitat conservation, flood protection and levee improvement, land management, and recreation and tourism to maximize benefits to the Delta ecosystem, regional economy, and water quality. This project was initially called the Central Delta Corridor Partnership. The document can be found here (updated 1/22/19).
The Delta Conservancy welcomes public comments on the final draft report until February 18, 2019. Comments may be submitted to:

CDFW Releases Delta Conservation Framework
January 15, 2019 – The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) released the Delta Conservation Framework as a comprehensive resource and guide for conservation planning in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta through 2050.
The framework provides a template for regional and stakeholder-led approaches to restoring ecosystem functions to the Delta landscape. It incorporates feedback from public workshops, planning efforts and the best available science on Delta ecosystem processes.
The Delta Conservation Framework includes broad goals that acknowledge the importance of effective communication, community engagement and education, making decisions based on science, and working collectively on conservation permitting and funding. The framework suggests multiple strategies that could be used by all Delta stakeholders to move conservation forward.
