Sea to Sierra Water Tour 2014
Rolling Seminar on California Water Issues (past)
The 2014 tour was held April 10 – 11.
Travel across the state on Amtrak’s famed California Zephyr, from the edge of sparkling San Francisco Bay, through the meandering channels of the Delta, past rich Central Valley farmland, growing cities, historic mining areas and into the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Speakers from stakeholder groups and governmental organizations will join the train and speak to the participants on the way from the Bay through the Sierras. The tour begins at the Amtrak train station in Emeryville and ends in Reno.
The Water Education Foundation’s tours are action-packed field trips that 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.
