The Yolo Basin Foundation is hosting a tour along Putah Creek on Sunday, June 3, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The day begins at the Monticello Dam, with a discussion of its history and function, and then the group will move downstream to see the workings of the water delivery system at the Putah Creek Diversion Dam. The next stop is at Dixon Ridge Farms, an organic walnut farm recognized for its award-winning sustainability practices.

Lunch will be served in Manfred Kusch’s creekside gardens, where everyone will have a chance to see a great diversity of birds. Next, the group will walk next door to meet the Madisons and hear about their flower and olive oil enterprises. Finally, the trip will end in the Turkovich family’s popular wine and cheese tasting room in downtown Winters.

The trip is part of the Yolo Basin Foundation’s fundraising series, a “Gaggle of Gatherings,” which consists of a variety of field trips 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.
