Bay-Delta Tour is a Once-a-Year, Don’t-Miss Opportunity to Explore California’s Vital Water Hub May 17-19
Hear diverse views & go behind the scenes on our popular tour of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta & San Francisco Bay
On our annual Bay-Delta Tour May 17-19, 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. You’ll also hear firsthand from people who rely on the Pacific salmon fishery for their livelihoods and learn why there is likely to be a fishing ban this season despite one of the wettest winters on record in California.
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, including:
- 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
- a visit to the Aquarium of the Bay
- a ferry ride across San Francisco Bay with views of the Golden Gate Bridge
- a visit to the Bay Model, a one-of-a-kind working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta system
- and more!
