Residential Workshops
SMUD has put temporary precautionary measures in place to help reduce the risk of spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re committed to continuing to support our community, but out of an abundance of caution, we’re restricting SMUD’s hosting of events and classes, for the safety of our employees and the public. This restriction will be in place until at least April 8.

We’re continuing to monitor the situation and advice from public health officials and will keep you updated as we start to reschedule our classes. If we are able to reschedule our classes in the future, attendees currently signed up will have the first opportunity to sign up for the new dates. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for your patience.
