Each year the Water Education Foundation organizes conferences
and tours so people can learn about water firsthand from experts
on all sides of the issue. That’s the hallmark of all the
Foundation’s programs – an opportunity to hear viewpoints from
farmers and irrigation district managers; urban users, local city
officials and water district managers; environmentalists,
scientists and recreationists.
The Water Education Foundation’s tours offer participants a
firsthand look at the water facilities, rivers
and regions critical in the debate about the future of water
resources. Issues of water supply, water quality, environmental
restoration, flood management, groundwater and water conservation
are addressed by a wide range of speakers representing different
The tours are praised for being balanced, thorough and
fun. Time for socializing and networking is included in
the action-packed itineraries.
Each year, the Foundation organizes conferences and workshops
devoted to specific issues surrounding water. The Foundation’s
annual Water Summit features speakers from stakeholder groups,
the state Legislature and governmental agencies who play
important roles in making policy decisions about water. Other
conferences have focused on climate change, groundwater, the
Delta, flood management and drought. We also typically host an
annual Water 101 workshop as well as other workshops.
Some conferences are conducted in partnership with state
agencies and other organizations.
