California Project WET Gazette — Goldilocks & California Water Management
Explore These Activities to Engage Students in Current Water & Land Management Decisions
Welcome to spring, Project WET Educators! In light of recent storms, I focused this Spring Gazette on Project WET activities that explore important water and land management challenges in the news, like protecting communities against floods while holding on to storm runoff for the drier months ahead. These activities then place your students in the hot seat of decision-making to find a balance to these challenges.
In addition, a variety of Project WET workshops and special events currently are open for registration this spring and summer, and more are in planning and will be added as details are finalized. Upcoming workshops and institutes include:
- A ‘Climate Change and California Water’ workshop in Morro Bay.
- A workshop in San Diego focused on ‘Water Science and Careers in California.’
- A workshop at the Cabrillo Aquarium in San Pedro exploring the interface between fresh water and ocean;
- A new series of workshops exploring ‘Floods, Floodplains and California Water.’
- And multi-day institutes this summer on California water resources and systems and forests & watershed management.
Hope you have a wonderful spring! – Brian
