Join us for Sac Science Distilled- You’ll hear short, idea-centered talks from local experts in the sciences. After the talk, we’ll have a lively discussion that brings science into context for everyday life.

Our speakers this month will be Pete Bontadelli (President, Yolo Basin Foundation) and Jeff Stoddard (Yolo Basin Wildlife Area Manager). They will talk about the history, acquisition, and management of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area.

Pete is the current Chair of the Yolo Basin Foundation and previously worked over 20 years for California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Pete will share history about the Basin that likely dates back to its creation and the people he personally met that signed the final agreements. He will also discuss the different management plans that have been used in the Basin and how its education outreach program came to be. Jeff is the current Manager of the Yolo Basin Wildlife Area and will discuss local conservation science that is going on there.
