Secretary Speaker Series


The Secretary Speaker Series is an opportunity to bring in outside voices to discuss emerging issues under the natural resources umbrella. This open forum allows Agency staff to learn more about a variety of topics and helps inform our work stewarding California’s resources.

To help expand our reach and audience these events are live-streamed on YouTube and recorded for later viewing. Links to videos will be posted below once ready.
