Field Trips & Tours


Bird Walks

Bird Walks

Join EMWD for a Bird Walk and share the opportunity to view hundreds of ibises, egrets, blackbirds and many other migratory and resident birds in their natural habitat at the EMWD Wetlands.

Located on the grounds of the San Jacinto Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility, the multi-purpose constructed wetlands “polishes” recycled water before it is distributed to nearby farms, dairies and the San Jacinto Wildlife Area for irrigation and additional environmental uses.

Bird Walks are hosted on the fourth Saturday of each month, October through April.

Tours are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Field Trips

EMWD’s Education program offers field trips for students in grade levels 3-12 from the 11 school districts and private schools within its service area. The 3 1/2 hour tour of EMWD’s Hemet/San Jacinto Regional Water Reclamation Facility and Wetlands is limited to a maximum of 35 students, with a requirement of four chaperones and one teacher. All teachers (new and returning) are required to attend and stay for a 90-minute field trip workshop.

The 2020/2021 tour season is completely booked at this time.
