Join the Water Education Foundation as we guide you on a virtual exploration of the Sacramento River and its tributaries and learn about the issues associated with a key source for the state’s water supply.

All together, the river and its tributaries supply 35 percent of California’s water and feed into two major projects: the State Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project.

This three-hour virtual tour hosted by Nick Gray and Jenn Bowles will include:

  • An overview presentation of the Sacramento Valley
  • An hour-long video tour of key stops in the Sacramento Valley
  • Live Q&A with the speakers in chat rooms where participants can dive deeper into the topics
Topics Include:
  • State Water Project and Central Valley Project operations, including Shasta Dam
  • Oroville Dam and its repaired spillway
  • Flood management
  • Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
  • Voluntary Agreements
  • Restoration of endangered Chinook salmon
  • Farming in the Sacramento Valley
  • Managed wetlands and wildlife refuges
  • Proposed Sites Reservoir Project
