Explore California’s Water Basics & the Lifeblood of the Southwest During Upcoming Virtual Events
Register for our Water 101 Workshop and/or Lower Colorado River Tour
Our two-day Water 101 Workshop begins on Earth Day, when you can gain a deeper understanding of California’s most precious natural resource.
One of our most popular events, the once-a-year workshop will be held as an engaging online event on the afternoons of Thursday, April 22 and Friday, April 23. California’s water basics will be covered by some of the state’s leading policy and legal experts, including the history, geography, legal and political facets of water in the state, as well a look at hot topics and current issues of concern.
Registration is now open for our May 20 virtual Lower Colorado River Tour! Learn about the role this ‘lifeblood of the Southwest’ plays in the three Lower Basin states of Nevada, Arizona and California, and how its water helps to sustain their cities, farms and wildlife areas.
The virtual journey covers a stretch of the Colorado River from Hoover Dam and its reservoir Lake Mead, down to the U.S./Mexico border and up to the Salton Sea. Along the way, you’ll hear from experts as they put into context the 20-plus year drought on what is already the most contested and meticulously managed river in the United States.
Plus, participants of the virtual tour will have an opportunity to dive deeper into the topics with those same experts during a live Q&A session.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a California Department of Water Resources employee paying by invoice, you must first arrange your DWR purchase order and provide the P.O. number during registration for either event.
