  • New Conservancy Board Chair Selected

    Jim Provenza, Yolo County supervisor, was selected as the chair of the Conservancy Board on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Supervisor Provenza has been a board member since its inception in June 2010 and replaces two-term  Chair Ken Vogel, San Joaquin County Supervisor. Dan Taylor, an Assembly appointee, was selected as the vice-chair to replace Mike Eaton, a Gubernatorial appointee. 

    The Conservancy has a 23-member board, consisting of 11 voting members, 2 non-voting state legislative members, and 10 non-voting liaison advisors. Five of the 11 voting members represent the Delta counties--and the chair must be selected from those five. The remaining voting members are the Secretary for the California Natural Resources Agency, the Director of the Department of Finance, two public members appointed by the Governor, and one public member each appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the Assembly.

    The Conservancy was established in 2010 to act as a primary State agency to implement ecosystem restoration in the Delta and to support efforts that advance environmental protection and the economic well being of Delta residents.

  • Delta Logo Development Begins Final Round

    After months of input from Delta residents, the Delta Protection Commission and the Conservancy developed two finalists for a Delta marketing logo. You can help select the final logo by taking the survey at this link.  

    Nine out of 10 Delta residents selected the term Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta over California Delta to appear in the final logo design. These final logo designs also incorporate other feedback provided through the first logo survey.

    Four taglines are also included for review and you are encouraged to rank these in the order that you think best describes the Delta.

    The final logo design will be used during the second phase of the Delta Branding and Marketing project. The Conservancy secured a grant from the Economic Development Agency to help Delta business develop a marketing plan.
