Description: The California Department of Water Resources, Project WET and Environmental Volunteers invite grade 3 through 12 educators to join us for an engaging workshop experience focused on climate change in California and the hands-on activities of Project WET.
Understanding climate change and its link to drought, water quality, sea level rise and more is crucial for all Californians.
