Deepen Your Knowledge of California Water and Visit the Delta
Popular Water 101 Workshop includes optional one-day Delta Tour
Deepen your knowledge of California water issues at our popular Water 101 Workshop and jump aboard the bus the next day to visit the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, a 720,000-acre network of islands and canals that supports the state’s water system and is California’s most crucial water and ecological resource.
In addition to learning about the history, geography and legal framework that has shaped California water, our annual workshop on Feb. 22 in Sacramento will include an in-depth session on the Delta – its history and the key role it plays, the numerous agencies and plans involved in the region and the proposed and controversial tunnels project to move water around the Delta.
The next day, you will have the option of seeing the Delta up close as we travel along the Sacramento River into the heart of the Delta. Expert water managers and engineers will be on the bus to guide you through this unique ecosystem.
The tour will make several stops to view water intake facilities, levees, restoration projects and more, with each visit guided by the professionals managing the respective projects. Our tour will culminate with a tour of the fish screens and pumps at Clifton Court Forebay, a key component of the State Water Project and the Central Valley Project.
