Join Us Thursday for Virtual Water Trivia
Have fun and support water education on Big Day of Giving
To celebrate the Big Day of Giving, the Water Education Foundation is hosting virtual water trivia this Thursday on our social media channels, and we invite you to join in the fun.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. PDT May 7, Programs Manager Nick Gray will host three short water trivia rounds live on Facebook and via posts on Twitter. We hope you will join us to show off your water knowledge and have a chance at winning prizes. Check out more details here.
And keep an eye on our Facebook page on May 7 for a few live snippets from various staff members giving the latest updates on our Water Leaders program, our teachers program known as Project WET, our water news, workshops and tours in the era of COVID-19.
The Big Day of Giving is an annual 24-hour fundraising event on May 7th aimed at raising money for nonprofits and highlighting their work. But you can donate today, which marks the nationwide effort to help nonprofits known as Giving Tuesday.
Your support and participation can help the Foundation continue the important work of creating a better understanding of water resources and fostering the resolution of water resource issues through facilitation, education and outreach.
Read what people from across California say about the Foundation’s impact:
“The Water Education Foundation helped ignite my passion for California water. Through attending events and participating in the Water Leaders class, I learned how valuable my experience in California agriculture can be in broader discussions about water.”
- Sara Reid, VP, Lead Relationship Manager – Western Region, CoBank, Foundation Board Member, Water Leaders Class of 2015
“It’s exciting to be a part of an organization that highlights the pressing issues in California’s water for the public to be able to truly engage in a topic that is critical to nearly everything, but often doesn’t get the attention it deserves.”
- Rick Aragon, Assistant General Manager, Rancho California Water District, Foundation Board Member, Water Leaders Class of 2017
The Water Education Foundation has been an important constant in my career in water. The programs and publications of the Foundation provide a wealth of information on water topics and challenges facing Californians. As a board member, I had the pleasure of working with the staff to ensure the exceptional programs adapt to new information technologies and to meet the continually evolving needs of water managers and users in California and the West.
-Maurice Hall, Associate VP, Ecosystems – Water, Environmental Defense Fund, Water Leaders Class of 2001
Policy and law in regard to water has never been easy, but the efforts and programs of the Water Education Foundation have always made the discussion easier.”
