Sacramento Luncheons

FMA Sacramento January Luncheon & Special Event

WHEN: Thursday, January 17th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: City of Sacramento Utilities Office, 1395 35th Ave., Sacramento, CA 95822

                  Sacramento River Room

TOPIC: “Lower Cosumnes River Floodplain Restoration Project” – The Nature Conservancy (TNC) recently completed the Lower Cosumnes River Floodplain Restoration Project located at the Cosumnes River Preserve in Sacramento County.  The Project components included selective removal of portions of private levees along the Lower Cosumnes River and restoration of approximately 500 acres of riparian floodplain habitat to improve connectivity between the river and its floodplain and facilitate process‐based restoration. The Project also offers a valuable opportunity to study restoration effects in an experimental design and at a scale that is large enough to accommodate ecologically‐significant processes.

 

SPEAKER:  Ryan Luster – Project Director at The Nature Conservancy.  Ryan Luster is an ecologist by training with extensive experience in riparian and grassland ecology, management, and restoration, large-scale conservation planning, and developing ecological river flows methodologies. Ryan’s work experience includes developing partnerships with state, federal, and non-profit organizations to produce tangible, on-the-ground results for both people and nature.

 

SPECIAL EVENT:  In addition to our monthly speaker program, the Sacramento January luncheon will include the presentation of the 2018 Floodplain Management Association – Integrated Flood Management Award to The Nature Conservancy in recognition of their efforts to complete the Lower Cosumnes River Floodplain Restoration Project.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT SPACE IS LIMITED SO PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE 5:00PM TUESDAY, JANUARY 15TH TO ENSURE YOUR REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED ON-TIME FOR THE LUNCHEON.
