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.

Please Note: For 2021, we held our Water 101 Workshop as a virtual event due to COVID-19 safety protocols, and are considering how we will be hosting events, such as our annual Water Summit, this fall in light of the ongoing uncertainty. Sign up for our announcements for the latest event information.
