Bay-Delta Tour is a Once-a-Year, Don’t-Miss Opportunity to Explore California’s Vital Water Hub June 5-7
Hear diverse views and go behind the scenes on our popular tour of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and San Francisco Bay
The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is the West Coast’s largest estuary and a vital hub in California’s complex water delivery system. It’s also a rich farming area, an important wetland and an ecologically troubled region.
On our Bay-Delta Tour June 5-7, participants will hear from a diverse group of experts including water managers, environmentalists, farmers, engineers and scientists who will offer various perspectives on a proposed tunnel project that would carry water beneath the Delta, efforts to revitalize the Delta and risks that threaten its delicate ecological balance.
In addition, tour participants will delve into issues related to Delta farming, flood management, endangered fish populations, restoration projects, water rights and how water is managed and delivered to more than 25 million Californians south of the Delta.
There’s plenty to see and experience:
- A guided tour of a Delta island closed to the public
- A private tour inside the Central Valley Project pumps
- Los Vaqueros Reservoir, the Bay Area’s largest reservoir, which serves a half-million people
- Big Break Regional Shoreline where visitors can catch a glimpse of the Delta before farms and levees transformed the landscape and altered the habitat
