What people say about the Foundation’s impact:
“The Water Education Foundation helped ignite my passion for California water. Through attending events and participating in the Water Leaders class, I learned how valuable my experience in California agriculture can be in broader discussions about water.”
- Sara Reid, VP, Lead Relationship Manager – Western Region, CoBank, Foundation Board Member, Water Leaders Class of 2015
“It’s exciting to be a part of an organization that highlights the pressing issues in California’s water for the public to be able to truly engage in a topic that is critical to nearly everything but often doesn’t get the attention it deserves.”
- Rick Aragon, Assistant GM, Rancho California Water District, Foundation Board Member and Water Leaders Class of 2017
Policy and law in regard to water has never been easy, but the efforts and programs of the Water Education Foundation have always made the discussion easier.”
- Chris Scheuring, Managing Counsel, Natural Resources & Environmental Dept., California Farm Bureau Federation, Water Leaders Class of 2004
The Water Education Foundation has been an important constant in my career in water. The programs and publications of the Foundation provide a wealth of information on water topics and challenges facing Californians. As a board member, I have the pleasure of working with the staff to ensure the exceptional programs adapt to new information technologies and to meet the continually evolving needs of water managers and users in the California and the West.
-Maurice Hall, Associate VP, Ecosystems – Water, Environmental Defense Fund, Water Leaders Alum, Class of 2001
