The Yolo Basin Foundation is hosting “A Day in the Capay,” a tour of one of Yolo County’s best-kept secrets — the Capay Valley — on Sunday, June 2, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The day will begin with stops at two organic farms, Capay Organics and Grumpy Goats Farm, where the owners will discuss farming and business in the valley.

Then the group will move on to the Capay Dam on Cache Creek. This structure includes one of the world’s largest inflatable dams, and the general manager of the irrigation district will present a primer on how Yolo County farmers get their water.

Next, there will be a visit to Yocha Dehe’s new olive oil operation and a visit with the manager. This stop will include a tour and tasting. Finally, the day will finish with an outdoor luncheon and wine-tasting at Capay Valley Vineyards.

The trip is part of the Yolo Basin Foundation’s fundraising series, a “Gaggle of Gatherings,” which consists of a variety of field trips, parties and workshops offered throughout the year. Tickets are $65 per person, and all proceeds go toward Yolo Basin Foundation’s wetlands education programs.

To purchase tickets, visit www.yolobasin.org and click on “Gaggle of Gatherings” or call the Yolo Basin Foundation at 530-757-3780.

Yolo Basin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the appreciation and stewardship of wetlands and wildlife through education and innovative partnerships.
