There’s still time for K-12 educators in the Sacramento region to sign up for an Oct. 3 workshop exploring activities to engage students in the study of local watersheds and their connections to the Pacific Ocean.
The workshop is part of Project WET (now called Water Education Today), an international, award-winning nonprofit water education program and publisher of materials geared toward K-12 educators. The Water Education Foundation is the coordinator for Project WET in California.
Register here by Sept. 25 for the Oct. 3 workshop that includes an online study at your own pace and a socially distanced field trip at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center along the American River. Cost is $18.00 (plus a nominal Eventbrite fee) and includes a copy of the Project WET 2.0 and Aquatic WILD guides.
The California Project WET program features high-quality professional development trainings for educators across the state focusing on such topics as watersheds, water resources and conservation, groundwater and climate change.
Most workshops have moved online in light of COVID-19. Visit our website to view:
In addition to Project WET activities, the Water Education Foundation offers a variety of maps and school-age publications to enhance water education in the classroom.

The Montana-based Project WET changed its name earlier this year from Water Education for Teachers to Water Education Today. The organization made the change to signify “both the importance of tackling water challenges immediately and the impact that Project WET is having in classrooms and far beyond.”
