Northern California Tour Explores Water Resources Across Sacramento Valley
Examine key state and federal water projects, habitat restoration, irrigation and groundwater
Get an up-close look at some of California’s key water reservoirs and learn about farming operations, habitat restoration, flood management and wetlands in the Sacramento Valley on our Northern California Water Tour Oct. 10-12.
Each year, participants on the Northern California Water Tour enjoy three days exploring the Sacramento Valley during the temperate fall. Join us as we travel through a scenic landscape along the Sacramento and Feather rivers to learn about issues associated with storing and delivering the state’s water supply.
The tour will visit Shasta Dam and Lake Shasta, the largest reservoir in the federal Central Valley Project, as well as Oroville Dam, the cornerstone of the State Water Project. In between these stops, tour participants will meet with irrigation companies, water districts, restoration projects, farmers and community leaders to learn how water travels hundreds of miles from these reservoirs to support California’s economy, ecology and populations. The tour will also visit the town of Sites, where a new reservoir has been proposed.
