I wanted to let all attendees of the Russian River Tour in 2009 know about a new one-day groundwater tour of the Sonoma Valley that the Water Education Foundation is organizing. The Foundation, in partnership with UC Davis, is planning a new one-day Sonoma Valley Wine Country Groundwater Tour on June 18 as part of our upcoming International Groundwater Conference, June 15-17. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the tour. This one-day tour will offer participants the opportunity to learn about efforts being made to manage groundwater. Tentative stops include dairies and wineries where speakers will discuss groundwater pollution protection programs, innovative water conservation and water recycling programs, and wetlands management.
There are a limited number of seats available for this special one-day tour, and registration will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration for the tour is $150. Attached is a registration form for the June 18 tour. To register, please complete the form and fax it to 916-448-7699.
