Join Us For An Open House and Reception May 3 at the Foundation
Check out what we do at open house held in conjunction with Sacramento region's Big Day of Giving
The Water Education Foundation has been around in California for more than 40 years! Have you ever been curious about our Water Leaders program, our tours or workshops, and Western Water news?
Join us for a reception at our midtown Sacramento office from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. May 3 to meet the staff, enjoy refreshments and check out what we do. Sign up here for the open house so we have a head count.
We are holding the open house in conjunction with the Big Day of Giving, an annual 24-hour online event in the Sacramento region aimed at raising funds for nonprofits and highlighting the good work they do.
Schedule your donation today or participate on May 3.
Donate $100 or more and receive one of our beautiful California water maps!
Our goal is to raise funds to support our programs and publications. Among other things, your donation will help us to continue:
- Updating Aquapedia, a free online “encyclopedia of water,” which centers on resource articles supplemented with photos, videos, interactive maps and other online tools. Together, they provide background and context to understanding California’s complex water issues.
- Posting each weekday on Aquafornia, our free online water news aggregator. Aquafornia covers California water news from both traditional and non-traditional news sources, presenting the many sides and views of the water picture, with the goal of fostering an understanding of various positions and discussion toward resolution of these often controversial issues.
- Holding teacher workshops as part of our statewide Project WET (water education for teachers), an interdisciplinary water science education program for formal and non-formal educators of kindergarten through 12th grade students that is developed, standard-aligned, field-tested and reviewed by educators and resource managers.
- Giving scholarships for our water tours and workshops about water. Our tours are two- to three-day excursions that offer participants a firsthand look at the water facilities, rivers, and regions critical in the debate about the future of water resources. Issues of water supply, water quality, environmental restoration, flood management, groundwater, and conservation are addressed by a wide range of speakers representing various viewpoints.
