Water Tour – Kern Water Bank and Kern River

November 29, 2017

9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The Kern Water Bank is filled to the brim with wonderful water from the recent rain and snow cycle. There are also a host of beautiful waterfowl on the bank that are rarely seen by the general public. Join the Water Association of Kern County for a bus tour of the Kern Water Bank and Kern River. We’ll learn the history and purpose of the bank and how it benefits Kern County. We’ll also make a stop up the Kern River to see the “first point of measurement,” where river flows are measured and monitored.
