Project WET is an international, award winning water resource education program for educators.

Project WET’s California Coordinator Brian Brown will co-facilitate the workshop with the Solano RCD. Alex Rabidoux, Supervising Water Resources Engineer from the Solano County Water Agency, will present on Solano County’s water resources and allocation methods.

“Teachers and educators are integral in helping children and their families learn about their water resources and responsible water use,” shared Marianne Butler, Education Director for the Solano RCD. “We are proud to bring Project WET resources to Solano County’s schools through these hands-on, engaging educator trainings.”

Participants will receive a free curriculum guide including NGSS-aligned content for all subject areas, online access to the Project WET online teacher portal, over six professional development hours, breakfast, lunch, and free classroom materials such as local water maps and curriculum manuals. A second training opportunity on climate change will occur on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., also at the Dunnell Nature Park and Education Center.
