The California Delta

A setting rich with natural resources, scenic beauty that’s part of our heritage.

The California Delta is like no other place. Geographically, it covers approximately 738,000 acres in the form of 58 islands surrounded by over 1,000 miles of rivers and sloughs winding around these islands. It receives water runoff from over 40% of the State’s land area.

This maze of islands, rivers and sloughs is situated in the confluence of two large rivers, the Sacramento and San Joaquin, and several tributaries, including the Mokelume, Cosumnes, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, and Merced rivers.

The natural beauty of the Delta is breathtaking, and we have provided you with an online gallery of Delta images so that we can share a glimpse of this beauty with you, no matter where in the world you might be.

Enjoy scenic moments from the California Delta that please the eye and soothe the soul.
