Local officials visited the Westside Water Education Center in Sonoma County earlier this week to see what other water leaders around the state are doing to educate communities on their watersheds and to conceptualize what such a facility might look like along the Yuba River.

The field study facility is located along the Russian River and is a part of the Sonoma County Water Agency’s Water Education Program, aimed at teaching kindergarteners through fifth-graders about the value of water as a natural resource.
