Presentations will explore tools and actions being developed to meet today’s management needs as well as to prepare for future challenges. The symposium will also explore our understanding of how habitats can be managed to encourage native and deter invasive species and how social science can be better integrated into invasive species management. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees during a poster session in the middle of the day.


The event is co-sponsored by the Delta Interagency Invasive Species Coordination (DIISC) Team, the Delta Stewardship Council's Delta Science Program, and UC Davis.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
