Weave through the nation’s breadbasket and gain a better understanding of water issues and challenges in the San Joaquin Valley on the Foundation’s Central Valley Tour April 3-5.
This tour visits farms and major infrastructure, such as Friant Dam near Fresno and San Luis Reservoir, the nation’s largest off-stream reservoir and a key water facility serving both the State Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project.
Others stops include the Tulare Lake Basin, Kern Water Bank, the Kings River, Terminus Dam and the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, a major wintering ground and migratory stopover point for large concentrations of waterfowl and shorebirds.
The tour begins at Sacramento International Airport Wednesday morning, April 3. We return to Sacramento Friday evening, April 5, after a fast-paced trek down the west side of the valley, through the Tulare Lake Basin and back up the east side.
