Sacramento: San Joaquin Delta- California’s Water (102)

Located at the confluence of the Sacramento and the San Joaquin River, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is made up of wetlands marked by channels and an extensive system of levees. Huell visits this vital part of our state and learns that it is many things–a destination for boating and fishing, a vital habitat for migratory birds, one of the most fertile agricultural areas in California and the source of drinking water for many Californians.
