Northern California Tour 2014
Field Trip (past)

The 2014 tour took place October 22-24.

This 3-day, 2-night tour travels the length of the Sacramento Valley, a major source of water for California.

Stops include Oroville and Shasta dams, Red Bluff Fish Passage Improvement Project, Feather River Fish Hatchery, Clear Creek restoration site, Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District’s fish screen and Delevan Wildlife Refuge. Other highlights have included a houseboat cruise on Shasta Reservoir. Participants learn about water supply management, farming, flood management, groundwater management and conjunctive use, and salmon restoration. The tour begins and ends at Sacramento International Airport.

The Water Education Foundation’s tours are action-packed field trips that offer participants a firsthand look at the water facilities, rivers and regions critical in the debate about the future of water resources. Issues of water supply, water quality, environmental restoration, flood management, groundwater and water conservation are addressed by a wide-range of speakers representing different viewpoints.
