• For security reasons adults will be asked to show identification such as a driver license.
• For safety reason, closed toed shoes are required (NO SANDALS OR HIGH HEELS)
• Dress in comfortable clothing. A hat and sunglasses are recommended during the outdoor portion of the tour.
• This tour involves a classroom style presentation and a walking portion (about 1.5 miles), including some stairs and steps.

Our thanks to Sherrie Lowery and Sharon Sargeant from the communications team at Regional San for welcoming us on this tour — we look forward to an interesting and informative visit!

Plus, the tour will be informally paired the following day with an Open Trail Day in The Bufferlands, a 2,150-acre expanse of open space surrounding the treatment plant that provides high quality wildlife habitat while also serving as a nuisance buffer. Join your fellow Science Peppers on Saturday, October 19th, and enjoy over five miles of trails through the wetlands, lakes, and riparian forests!
