Water Tours

Overview

Water Tours

The Water Education Foundation’s tours offer participants a firsthand look at the water facilities, rivers and regions critical in the debate about the future of water resources. Issues of water supply, water quality, environmental restoration, flood management, groundwater and water conservation are addressed by a wide range of speakers representing different viewpoints.

The tours are praised for being balanced, thorough and fun. Time for socializing and networking is included in the action-packed itineraries.

A limited number of scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis. For more information, please contact Programs Manager Nick Gray.

Lower Colorado River Tour 2020
Field Trip - March 11-13

Explore the lower Colorado River where virtually every drop of the river is allocated, yet demand is growing from myriad sources — increasing population, declining habitat, drought and climate change.

The 1,450-mile river is a lifeline to 40 million people in the Southwest across seven states and Mexico. How the Lower Basin states – Arizona, California and Nevada – use and manage this water to meet agricultural, urban, environmental and industrial needs is the focus of this tour.
