The California Delta


“The Delta is my Sistine Chapel. There are no two sunsets alike on the Delta.” – Jay Sorensen

We are sad to hear of the passing of our friend, Jay Sorensen, Stockton angler, longtime conservationist, and board member to the Discover the Delta Foundation. Sorensen’s many accolades include the ‘best bait fisherman’ in the San Joaquin River Delta, inductee into the California Outdoor Hall of Fame, and trailblazer who brought attention to the Delta’s deteriorating ecology and fisheries. Jay, thank you for everything you have done for our beloved Delta, you will be missed!

The Discover the Delta Foundation is a science based, educational, nonprofit organization that is dedicated to teaching people about the wonders of the California Delta and its amazing resources.

The mission of the Discover the Delta Foundation is to promote, protect and preserve the California Delta by providing objective and science-based information so that this very important resource can be better understood, enhanced and enjoyed now and for the future.

What’s New?

    PG&E has provided 11,000 yards (550 truck loads) of environmentally sound dirt as well as equipment and labor in laying down the pad for DTDF’s 8,000 square foot Discover the Delta Education Center.
    Thanks so much to Supervisor Don Nottoli and his staff for a grant of $10,000, we also thank the US Department of Agriculture’s Farmers’ Market Promotion Program forwarding us a grant of nearly $40,000. Funding is key to the success of our project – please remember that 100% of proceeds from the Delta Farmers Market are used to fund the Discover the Delta Foundation.
