The Foundation opened its doors in 1977 when California was in the second year of a major drought. The Foundation’s articles of incorporation were filed on Feb. 27 of that year, creating a nonprofit, nonpolitical, tax-exempt educational organization.
Today, the Sacramento-based Foundation remains a vital source of nonpartisan, in-depth information about water resource issues in California and the West.
Taking a steady pulse of the water world, the Foundation provides a vast repertoire of educational materials, products and services such as our water tours, lectures, our flagship quarterly magazine, Western Water, and Project WET (Water Education for Teachers).
