The past two decades have witnessed an explosion of scientific studies of the San Francisco Bay estuary, vastly improving our understanding of its natural history and ecology. Every two years the San Francisco Estuary Project brings together researchers, government officials, advocates, and the general public to share the results of the groundbreaking work being done and to address future issues of concern. The Sixth Biennial State of the Estuary Conference will run October 21-23 at the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center in Oakland. Presentations will address the health of the estuary and its fisheries, how West Nile virus might affect people living around the estuary, and other timely topics. To register and find out more, visit www.abag.ca.gov/events/estuary_state, or call (510) 622-2465.
