FishTales: Stories of the California Delta set for Oct. 18


The Delta Science Center will once again be hosting “FishTales ~ Stories of the California Delta” on Saturday, Oct. 18. The event feature a series of storytellers who explore the depth of the Delta’s history, be it triumphs and adventures of the region’s pioneers, ferry boat captains, levee builders, island dwellers or the stories that built the Delta we know today.

The fundraiser takes place at Big Break Regional Shoreline Park, which opened the Big Break Visitor Center in 2012, with the addition of a permanent display area featuring Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta exhibits, complete with a science room for student learning. The benefit will take place in the amphitheater in the Delta Discovery Area looking out on the Delta shoreline right at sunset.

“FishTales ~ Stories of the California Delta”, will benefit the Delta Science Center’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Educational Resource Guide Calendar and Teacher Education Guide. This fifth grade education program is donated free to 7,500 students and 152 teachers from Martinez to Discovery Bay and Rio Vista to Clarksburg.

Providing the weather holds out the Delta Science Center plans to light a campfire in the amphitheater fire pit to add to the storytelling obeisance.

The event, which takes place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., will feature storytelling, music, art, silent auction, Delta wines and hors d’oeuvres.
