Thursday at 2:30 p.m: Join us Nov. 19 for the Central Valley Tour as we explore water supply challenges in the San Joaquin Valley, one of the nation’s most productive agricultural regions. You’ll hear from farmers, water managers, disadvantaged communities and others about how they’re meeting those challenges, including the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Get your ticket to the three-hour virtual journey here.
Dec. 10: Registration is also open for our San Joaquin River Restoration Tour, examining one of the nation’s largest and most expensive river restoration projects. The project is aimed at restoring flows to a 60-mile, mostly dry stretch of river to revive chinook salmon runs while reducing or avoiding adverse water supply impacts to farmers. See hard-to-reach sections of the river and hear from biologists and farmers about the progress and challenges involved in bringing salmon back to the San Joaquin River. Get your tickets for the three-hour virtual journey here.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available for all tours. Contact Nick Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
