The Water Education Foundation’s tours 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.
The tours are praised for being balanced, thorough and fun. Participants learn about local, state and federal issues from experts on all sides. Time for socializing and networking is included in the action-packed itineraries.
In 2017, we are offering six different tours, and potentially more, including our standard four tours held every year: The Lower Colorado River, the Central Valley, the Bay-Delta and Northern California. We’re also offering a new headwaters tour.
A limited number of scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis. For more information, please contact Tour Director Dan Scott.
