California Drought Tour Itinerary Announced
Tour to focus on drought impacts in the San Joaquin Valley
Join us for our California Drought Tour through the San Joaquin Valley on September 1-2. Buy your seat on the bus today! Early bird prices good until August 3.
As farmers fallow fields, towns receive emergency drinking water and groundwater supplies are depleted, we will explore the impacts of California’s unprecedented four-year drought on the nation’s breadbasket and what steps are being taken to avert disaster.
Hear firsthand from farmers, water managers, state and local officials, researchers, and community activists.
Our tentative itinerary includes:
- Friant Dam and Millerton Lake on the San Joaquin River
- The drought-stricken communities of East Porterville, Coalinga, Monson and Huron
- The historic Cantua Creek region and Coalinga Canal
- Sites of continuing subsidence, including the Los Gatos Creek alluvial fan
- Farming regions in Fresno, Tulare and Kings counties.
