Picnic Day


Each spring UC Davis showcases campus activities and talents by inviting the public to come and participate in events throughout the day. HSGG has long participated by hosting a demonstration on groundwater transport. In some years other activities have been held, such as a discussion on Davis' drinking water quality.
