Like a human fingerprint, California's Sacramento Valley is truly unique.

The Sacramento Valley joins together a world- renowned mosaic of natural abundance: productive farmlands, wildlife refuges and managed wetlands, cities and rural communities, and meandering rivers that support and feed fisheries and natural habitats. Through efficient management of the region's water resources, the Sacramento Valley will continue to provide what's essential to California's future success and prosperity. Nourishment and sustenance from the fields, habitats for fish and wildlife, recreation and a special quality of life - the Sacramento Valley is home to all of this, and more.
