Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences, workshops and special events devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s annual Water Summit, typically held in the fall, features speakers from various interest 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.

Save the date! Our popular Water Summit will be held in Sacramento on Oct. 30, 2024.
