Year-round Flows Restored to Section of San Joaquin River
Join our Nov. 2-3 tour of the river to see restoration program progress first-hand
For the first time in more than 60 years, year-round flows are expected to return to a section of the San Joaquin River by the end of October, The Associated Press reported over the weekend. You can access the complete story here through Aquafornia, the Water Education Foundation’s news aggregate service.
Tickets are still available for our Nov. 2-3 San Joaquin River Restoration Tour, a once-a-year educational opportunity to see the program’s progress first-hand.The tour begins and ends in Fresno with an overnight stay in Los Banos.
Our tours provide personal interaction with experts who have their boots in the mud to work on California’s largest water issues. On this two-day tour, we will present numerous stakeholders who will provide a broad perspective on the restoration project. Over the two days, participants will meet with restoration specialists, water managers, environmentalists, farmers, and fish biologists to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue.
With the ultimate goal of restoring populations of spawning salmon, the restoration program remains controversial. We will travel from Friant Dam in the Sierra Nevada foothills and through the San Joaquin Valley along more than 100 miles of the watershed. Along the way, we will visit all five reaches of the restoration project and meet with individuals working in and on these specific areas.
