California's riparian areas act as wildlife corridors, provide essential reserve and open-space in many urbanizing regions of the state, and are ecologically important to watersheds. Riparian areas also occur within the floodplain and are the transition between the aquatic and terrestrial environments. The Riparian Habitat Joint Venture (RHJV) will host agencies, organizations, scientists, engineers, landowners, and leaders collaborating to conserve riparian areas while protecting communities from devastating floods. USGS scientists will present riparian wildlife research.

What: Riparian Habitat Joint Venture Conference
Topic: Integrating Riparian Habitat Conservation and Flood Management in California
Where: The Radisson Hotel, 500 Leisure Lane, Sacramento, California
