Join us this fall for engaging virtual journeys into key water regions across California, including our Oct. 8 Bay-Delta Tour.
- An overview presentation of the region’s critical topics

- Live Q&A with experts featured in the video so attendees can dive deeper into the topics
As part of each event, participants will receive one of our popular Layperson’s Guides and be entered into a drawing to win one of our beautiful water maps.
Please note that the recent smoke from wildfires across California made filming difficult and pushed back our fall tour schedule a bit. New dates for our Central Valley and San Joaquin River Restoration tours are below.
Join us on a virtual journey deep into California’s water hub as we traverse the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, a 720,000-acre network of islands and canals that supports the state’s water system and is California’s most crucial water and ecological resource.
Registration is open here.

On this virtual tour, we will travel north to explore the Sacramento River and its tributaries, a key source for the state’s water supply. In addition to visiting major infrastructure on the State Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project, you’ll learn about important water issues such as efforts to help native salmon runs and farming in the Sacramento Valley.
Central Valley Tour: Nov. 19 (New Date)
This virtual journey will focus on the San Joaquin Valley, the southern portion of California’s larger Central Valley and known as the nation’s breadbasket thanks to an imported supply of surface water and local groundwater. All together, the Central Valley provides 25 percent of the nation’s food, including 40 percent of all fruits, nuts and vegetables consumed throughout the country. Learn how the region is working to meet the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
San Joaquin River Restoration Tour: Dec. 10 (New Date)
Join us as we guide you on a virtual journey along the San Joaquin River to learn about one of the nation’s largest and most expensive river restoration projects. The restoration effort has been aimed at restoring flows to a 60-mile, mostly dry stretch of the San Joaquin River to revive chinook salmon runs while reducing or avoiding adverse water supply impacts to farmers.
