Climate Change & California Water
A CLIMATE FOCUS WORKSHOP FOR EDUCATORS WORKING WITH GRADES 3 THROUGH 12 STUDENTS

Sponsored By: California Department of Water Resources; Pala Band of Mission Indians & Water Education Foundation
Description: The California Department of Water Resources, Pala Band of Mission Indians and California Project WET program invite educators who work with students in 3rd through 12th Grades to a workshop learning about climate change, California’s water resources – and Project WET activities that can help you integrate climate science back in the classroom.
Understanding climate change and its link to flood, drought, water quality, human health and more is crucial for all Californians. In this special workshop, you will learn activities to use with your students to help them understand the impacts of climate change on water and steps they can take to adapt to our changing environment.

- Great information on current climate science.
- Learn about local climate change impacts and citizen science opportunities.
- An opportunity to interact directly with DWR Climate and Pala Band Environmental research staff.

- Morning coffee and lunch courtesy of the Pala Band of Mission Indians
- An opportunity to receive 0.8 CEU credit.
And a $100 stipend following completion of the training.
This workshop will be an interdisciplinary exploration of climate science, how people are applying the science to conserve California’s water resources and develop climate resilient communities – and how the interdisciplinary activities of Project WET can help you engage your students in the study of climate and change in your classroom or education program.
Registration limited to the first 30 to register!
