Edge of Drought Tour
Field Trip - Aug. 27-29

Journey through a scenic landscape as we explore an area of California dealing with persistent threats to its water supply and quality, and learn what solutions are being implemented.

Although Santa Barbara County recently lifted its drought emergency declaration after this winter’s storms replenished local reservoirs, the region’s hydrologic recovery often has lagged behind much of the rest of the state. It is a region particularly prone to drought, wildfires and mudslides.
