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 an annual
Water 101 workshop as well as other workshops.
Some conferences are conducted in partnership with state
agencies and other organizations.
