Capital Science Communicators (CapSciComm) is excited to participate in the 2018 Bay-Delta Science Conference!

CapSciComm at 10th Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference
Monday, September 10, 2018
Tuesday, September 11, 2018
5:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
Sacramento Convention Center
Open to Registered BDSC2018 Attendees (on-site registration available)

Hosted by the Delta Stewardship Council and the U.S. Geological Survey, the Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference is a forum for presenting technical analyses and results relevant to the Delta Science Program’s mission to provide the best possible, unbiased, science-based information for water and environmental decision-making in the Bay-Delta system. The goal of the conference is to offer new information and syntheses to the broad community of scientists, engineers, resource managers, and stakeholders working on Bay-Delta issues.

Science communication is a familiar theme at BDSC conferences. A long-standing feature is the conference art program, which connects artists with scientists towards creative collaborations exploring the relationships of humans and the Delta environment. Scicomm trainings are offered as well — this year’s conference includes a plenary titled “Communicating Science in a Post-Truth World” by Amy Mathews Amos of COMPASS, paired with two “Making Your Message Stick” workshops.

To further the scicomm spirit, CapSciComm will be among the local organizations hosting information booths during the Poster Session & Reception evenings on Monday and Tuesday evening. Come meet CapSciComm Board Members Emily Underwood, Sarah Barnes, Nick Gray, and Ben Young Landis, who will be on hand to speak with conference attendees. (Of course, our own Nir Oksenberg will be hard at work all conference-long roaming about the floors in his official duties for the Delta Stewardship Council!)

So if you’re registered to attend #BDSC2018, come by and say hello! Let us help welcome you to Sacramento, and share our insights on careers and inner workings of science journalism, public outreach, and strategic communication.

Or, if you’re a Sacramento-based attendee, come ask us about our amazing CapSciComm community and all of our professional development resources — right here at home, and always at your service.

See you at the Convention Center!
