This 3-day, 2-night tour travels the length of the Sacramento Valley, a primary source of water for much of California. Stops include Oroville and Shasta dams, Red Bluff Fish Passage Improvement Project, Feather River Fish Hatchery, Clear Creek restoration site, Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District and Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. Other highlights include a houseboat cruise on Shasta Lake. Speakers talk about farming, water supply, flood management, groundwater and salmon restoration. The tour begins and ends at Sacramento International Airport. Experts talk about the history of the Sacramento River as the tour wends through riparian woodland, crop fields and nut orchards. The tour tracks important water issues for farming and environmental uses, visits potential storage sites, discusses innovative programs for flood management, groundwater management and salmon restoration.
