Journey along the Sacramento River and Into Other Key California Watersheds During Virtual Events this Fall
Enjoy our NorCal Tour Oct. 14 and Travel Into the Sierras for our Headwaters Tour Nov. 9; Don't Forget our Virtual Water Summit event Oct. 28
Plus, our annual Water Summit will feature water managers and other water experts who are dealing with the “new normal” as unprecedented drought and wildfires challenge the status quo.
The Northern California Tour on Oct. 14 is just one of three unique virtual journeys to choose from this fall. Each will run from 2:30-5:30 p.m. PT and include:
- An overview presentation of the region’s critical topics
- A guided video tour of key locations — farms, wetlands, dams and reservoirs, wildlife habitats — to gain a stronger understanding on a variety of water supply issues and the latest policy developments
- Live Q&A with experts in chat rooms so participants can dive deeper into the topics, including the drought gripping California.
