Registration Open for Virtual Journey of Sierra Watershed
Join us Aug. 6 for an exclusive screening and live Q&A with scientists, water managers and others
Registration is now open for our virtual Headwaters Tour with an exclusive screening of a video that takes viewers on a journey across the upper watershed of a major Sierra-fed river to learn the important role forests play in California’s water supply.
You’ll go to the crest of the Sierras to learn how the state measures snowpack, to a meadow restoration deep in the forest and along the American River in the foothills where water is diverted for homes.
In addition to the video shown during the Aug. 6 Headwaters Tour, you can participate in a live Q&A with speakers who are on the front line of finding ways to deal with challenges happening in our forests – climate change, reduced snowpack, overcrowded forests, wildfires.
You’ll hear from scientists, water users and others working on important projects along the American River. The river feeds into the larger Sacramento River right before it heads to the Delta, where the water sustains one of the West Coast’s most important freshwater tidal estuaries before traveling via canals and aqueducts to San Joaquin Valley farms and Southern California taps.
Register here for this unique experience!
Registration includes a copy of our Layperson’s Guide to California Water or a copy of our Layperson’s Guide to Climate Change & Water Resources.
In addition, we’ll hold a drawing during the event for one of our beautiful California water maps.
The video features:
- Dave Eggerton, executive director of the Association of California Water Agencies
- Sean de Guzman, chief of snow surveys and water supply forecasting for the California Department of Water Resources
- Brittany Covich, policy and outreach manager for the Sierra Nevada Conservancy
- Ariel Roughton, research stations manager at UC Berkeley’s Blodgett Forest Research Station
