Audio: California Delta Lifestyles and History

I came across this interesting series of 9-12 minute radio interviews which has been broadcast very recently. I thought those who know the Delta or want to know more about the Delta would enjoy them.

These are really great, thank you for finding them. Our marina and others around them are very worried about the proposed tunnels because they will increase the salinity of the delta. We can catch bass, catfish, blue gills and even a salmon sometimes right in the slough we are on. We are against the building of the tunnels because they don't do anything to increase the supply of water, they take away existing water to feed Southern California. (ok, getting off my soap box now)

I agree with you, DD. Are you on Seven Mile Slough off the SJ River?

Don't have audio, but agree those tunnels will be bad for the delta and the whole San Francisco Estuary.

Thanks, I look forward to listening. I regret not getting an oral history from my father; our family has deep roots in the Delta going back when the sloughs and "islands" were being developed which a great-grandfather had a hand in.
