Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Water Summit features speakers from stakeholder groups, the state Legislature and governmental agencies who play important roles in making policy decisions about water. Other conferences have focused on climate change, groundwater, the Delta, flood management and drought. We also host a Water 101 workshop, typically each year as well as other workshops. Some conferences are conducted in partnership with state agencies and other organizations.

Water 101 Workshop: The Basics and Beyond
One-day workshop includes optional groundwater tour the next day

One of our most popular events, our annual Water 101 Workshop details the history, geography, legal and political facets of water in California as well as hot topics currently facing the state.

Taught by some of the leading policy and legal experts in the state, the one-day workshop on Feb. 7 gives attendees a deeper understanding of the state’s most precious natural resource.
