Stop By Our Open House May 2 and Learn How We Help Educate About Water
Meet our staff and learn about the Foundation's tours, training programs and publications about water
Come join us for an open house and reception on Thursday, May 2 at our office in midtown Sacramento, where you can meet our staff and learn more about what we do to educate and foster public understanding of water resource issues in California and the Southwest.
The Water Education Foundation has been around in California for more than 40 years! This open house, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., is an ideal time to meet some of the people behind our Water Leaders program for early to mid-career professionals, our tours and workshops, our Project WET teacher training and our Western Water online news.
Click here to RSVP and get more information, including testimonials from people who have gone through our programs.
We’re holding the open house in conjunction with the Big Day of Giving, a 24-hour online event aimed at raising funds for nonprofits and highlighting the good work they do. You can schedule a tax-deductible donation today or participate on May 2. This year’s campaign is in honor and memory of Gary Weatherford, our longtime board member.
Among the staff on hand at the open house will be:
- Nick Gray, our programs manager in charge of water tours who can tell you more about the places you’ll go to and the things you’ll see on one of our upcoming tours. Our next tour is the three-day Bay-Delta Tour, our most popular tour, which will take participants through California’s vital water hub in early June.
- Brian Brown, our Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) coordinator who can discuss some of the upcoming training opportunities for K-12 teachers to learn more about watersheds, wetlands and climate change.
- Kasey Chong, who coordinates our year-long Water Leaders program for early to mid-career professionals and can explain how the program works and when to apply for the next class.
- Patrick Dunlap, our development director who can talk about how you can support the Foundation’s work.
- Doug Beeman, our deputy director, news & publications, and Gary Pitzer, our chief writer, who can talk about Western Water, our online news magazine, as well as our layperson’s guides, poster-size water maps and other publications.
