Understand the history, beauty and importance of the Delta in the State’s water supply and how its estuary drains half of California’s watershed and plays a crucial role in the habitats for numerous wildlife and the sustainability of our water. This “Inland Coast” is home to 70 species of birds, and provides valuable habitat for beavers, muskrats, and river otters. The Big Break Estuary is the largest on the Pacific Shores!
MIKE MORAN is the Supervising Naturalist at Big Break Regional Shoreline, part of Delta East Bay Regional Park District. His areas of interest are California’s water issues, birds and local history. Mike has worked with the National Park Service, California State Parks, National Marine Sanctuary System, Yosemite Institute (now Nature Bridge), and has led natural history and whale watch programs in Alaska, Canada, New England, Washington, and California.
