Workshop Vision Statement

One of the goals of the CALFED Science Program is to provide authoritative and unbiased descriptions of scientific knowledge. To fulfill this goal, the Science Program holds workshops designed to provide a forum for discussions and the exchange of information among Scientists, Stakeholders, Agency Staff, and the public about topics important to the region. These workshops synthesize the science related to complex problems and provide advice for undertaking specific complex tasks in support of Delta planning and decision-making.

Past workshops have addressed topics such as variable-Delta conveyance, the pelagic organism decline, and Delta smelt migration. Below is a list of all workshops hosted by the CALFED Science Program.
