Thanks for your support this year; see what’s on tap for 2017
A letter from the executive director
Dear Friends and Supporters,
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I and the staff at the Water Education Foundation want to extend our deep gratitude to everyone who came on a tour with us this year, attended one of our conference or Project WET workshops, and read Western Water magazine or any of our other publications on key water topics.
Water is California’s most precious natural resource and we’re grateful that we can raise awareness about it on a daily basis, whether it’s through free online resources, such as Aquafornia, our daily news aggregate; Aquapedia, our online water encyclopedia; Western Water on Tap, our new blog; and even our Twitter and Facebook pages.
As a nonprofit we can’t do this work without your help so we’re grateful to everyone who made contributions this past year to support our mission. If you still want to support us in any way, click here to make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year or donate on #GivingTuesday, which follows Black Friday.
Every contributor at the $100 level and above gets a subscription to our quarterly magazine and any updates to our Layperson’s Guide. For instance, everyone this past year received our updated Layperson’s Guide to California Water, the primer to learn the basics about our most important resource.
As we wind down 2016 and get ready for 2017, we have a slate of events coming up. You can:
- Apply for next year’s Water Leaders class by the Dec. 7 deadline
- Bolster your knowledge about California water issues by attending our Water 101 Workshop in early February
- Spend March 23rd with us at our annual conference, the Executive Briefing, listening about water policy with the theme of “Wave of Change: Breaking the Status Quo.” Registration just opened!
- And look for a new Headwaters Tour in the spring.
And watch our online store for:
- Additions to our lauded Layperson’s Guide Series, including an updated one on Groundwater and an entirely new one on The Colorado River Delta.
- Updated maps for your office wall: New versions of our popular California Water Map and the California Groundwater Map
