The One Ring to Rule Them All — California Project WET Gazette
Activities & Actions for Drought and a Changing Climate
The past year has given plenty food for thought on how we as people react to a world of change – the world of human interactions and the ecosystems around us. The Summer Gazette uses the lens of a tale that ponders these same relationships as the characters react to threats that are immediate and more indistinct much like our current drought in a world that has grown far warmer and extreme in its cycles.
The Summer Gazette includes activities to supplement your existing curriculum, such as “Thirsty Plants” and “Pass the Jug”, plus some great ideas for saving a couple more dollars around the house while shrinking your personal ‘footprint’ on the California water supply!
In addition to the Gazette, the Water Education Foundation has a few other items for you this summer, including:
- Our new All Things Drought page where you can find real-time reservoir levels, drought severity maps, special reports, a newsfeed of current developments and general background on droughts in California and the West, as well as answers to common drought questions and tips for how you can save water at home.
- A moving sale - We’re moving later this summer and don’t want to haul all of our water maps, Layperson’s Guides, DVDs and more to the new home. Some of these items make excellent teacher resources. So we’re making you a limited-time offer of 30% off the price of all of our maps, guides and more!
Finally, keep an eye out for new Project WET workshops and special events as we get closer to fall. We are involved in several in-person institutes this summer and are planning to have a variety of virtual, in-person and hybrid workshop experiences as we move into the fall. - Brian
