(Corner of Hearst and LeRoy)

Meet the speaker at a reception at the Water Resources Center Archives,
4:45pm – 5:30pm.
Light refreshments will be served.

The Sacramento River is California’s premier river, with the largest salmon runs, greatest riparian forests, biggest floods, and critically important water supply for cities and farms. Diana Jacobs, Ph. D., will review her 25 years of experience collaborating (or sometimes fighting) to restore the river’s fish and wildlife resources. She will relate harrowing tales and lessons learned in balancing protection of Public Trust resources and environmental values with demand for other public benefits, including flood control, water supply and local land use patterns. Lastly, the current post-Katrina politics of flood control in California – and what that means for rivers in the State's Great Central Valley, will be discussed.
