Science Meeting

The San Joaquin River Restoration Program held its first Science Meeting on June 11-12, 2015, in Los Banos, California. The goal was to connect those conducting scientific research and monitoring to support the SJRRP, learn about preliminary findings from monitoring and analysis efforts, and inform SJRRP management of scientific results.

There were 35 presentations given in total. If you would like a copy of any of the presentations, please email Emily Thomas at We encourage you to contact any of the presenters directly to keep dialog and sharing of ideas ongoing.
