Welcome

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy (Conservancy) is a primary state agency in the implementation of ecosystem restoration in the Delta. We support efforts that advance environmental protection and the economic well-being of Delta residents. The Conservancy collaborates and cooperates with local communities and other parties to preserve, protect, and restore the natural resources, economy, and agriculture of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and Suisun Marsh.

WEST SACRAMENTO – The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy Board on Wednesday convened for its first meeting of 2024, approving a new project as well as the Conservancy’s Implementation Plan for 2024.

The Board voted unanimously to approve up to $715,180 in grant funding to Suisun City for the Suisun City Fishing Dock Planning Project.

The funding will help plan the construction of a public fishing dock in the Suisun Slough, located within Suisun City. The dock will be Americans with Disabilities Act accessible and feature benches, shade, fishing pole holders, and an educational kiosk.


Here are highlights from the Delta Conservancy’s work in 2023, grouped by goals set in the Conservancy’s 2022-2027 Strategic Plan:

Recording Available: 2023 Delta Invasive Species Symposium

A recording of the the 2023 Delta Invasive Species Symposium is now available on our YouTube channel. Presentations explored how connections within and among estuaries impact invasive species movement, how connectivity of different types can both help and hinder invasive species control, and how making connections among disciplines, policies, and actors is critical to effective invasive species management.

Since 2015, the Delta Interagency Invasive Species Coordination (DIISC) Team has organized a biennial Delta Invasive Species Symposium. The symposium is a forum for Delta managers, researchers, and decision-makers to meet, share and synthesize information, and communicate best practices and lessons learned.

Delta Conservancy Board Approves $13 Million for Nature-Based Solutions: Wetland Restoration Projects

October 25, 2023
OAKLEY – The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy Board on Wednesday approved awarding up to $13.3 million for three climate-benefit projects that will provide fish and wildlife habitat, halt or reverse subsidence, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, support the Delta economy, and more.

The grant funding for these projects was made possible by the Amended Budget Act of 2022, which provided the Delta Conservancy with a general fund allocation of $36 million for projects that support Nature Based Solutions: Wetland Restoration.

“This funding offers a great opportunity to implement projects that offer nature-based solutions to habitat loss, subsidence, and carbon emissions on Delta islands. We have the science that tells us rewetting the landscape will be beneficial; now we can start putting this knowledge into practice,” said Karen Buhr, Delta Conservancy Deputy Executive Officer.

The projects approved Wednesday will contribute to California’s 30×30 goal of conserving 30% of our lands and coastal waters by 2030.


Resources for Science, Data, and Environmental Compliance and Permitting for Delta Conservancy Projects

Delta Conservancy staff has prepared an overview for the public of key resources for science, data, environmental compliance, and permitting in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

The below presentation is intended to help individuals or organizations interested in applying for Conservancy funding. This overview is consistent with the Conservancy’s General Grant Guidelines and provides resources related to science strategies, adaptive management, climate change, scientific literature, scientific data, visualizations, environmental compliance, and permitting.
