What Your Gifts Made Possible in 2023
Teaching the next generation . . .
- Project WET (Water Education Today) – This year more than 600 educators across California attended our workshops to learn how to bring lessons on water, climate change, flood, drought and conservation into their classrooms. More than 100,000 students are expected to be reached by those educators trained in our Project WET workshops! For 28 years we have been the only sanctioned nonprofit to deliver Project WET in California.
- Water Leaders – The California program boasts more than 500 graduates since its inception in 1997, helping the next generation of leaders deepen their water knowledge and develop collaborative leadership skills.The 2023 cohort included lawyers, engineers, scientists, farmers and environmentalists ready to tackle water problems in a collaborative fashion.
Keeping everyone current on the issues . . .
- Aquafornia, our roundup of water news delivered each weekday, keeps you up to date nearly 250 days a year with what’s happening in the water world, and Western Water, our online magazine, provides in-depth coverage of important water issues. Both resources are free to the public.
- Our 18 Layperson’s Guides offer easy-to-understand overviews on the most important water topics in California and the West. Our updated guides to the Klamath River and Colorado River watersheds will debut in the coming weeks, as we begin working on next year’s updated guide to Water Recycling.
These are just a few examples of the impact our supporters made in 2023. Please donate today to help us make an even greater impact in 2024.
Thank you for any level of support!
