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

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

The past three-year span, 2019 to 2022, has officially been the

that went from a relatively wet Oct.-Dec. beginning to
the driest Jan.-March period in the state’s history.

climate whiplash, and has any of this affected our reliance on
historical patterns to forecast California’s water supply?
