Central Valley Tour: April 20-22
Friday at noon is the deadline to register for our our Central Valley Tour. The region is at the epicenter of California’s myriad water challenges, confronting little to no surface water deliveries in a third year of drought and dealing with increasing pressure to reduce groundwater usage to sustainable levels while also facing water equity challenges.
This 3-day, 2-night tour focuses on the San Joaquin Valley, the southern part of the vast region. The tour brings you face-to-face with some of the most important leaders and experts in water storage, management and delivery, agriculture, habitat, land use policy and water equity.
A limited amount of scholarship funding is available for the tour, but you must submit an application as soon as possible. Contact Sarah Angulo via email for a scholarship application.
Water Leaders Reunion: Oct. 26
This year we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our California Water Leaders program, and planning for a reunion later this fall of alums dating back to 1997.
If you have gone through our program, save the date for Oct. 26, roughly 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., for a reunion to mark the special anniversary. We will be holding it along the American River in a rustic, relaxed setting with lawn games, happy hour and dinner.
