As coordinator for the Santa Clara Valley Water District's education outreach program, I have found the Water Education Foundation to be an invaluable resource. The trainings and tours provided are excellent and helped prepare me to outreach to educators in the Santa Clara Valley. Resources provided by the Water Education foundation are of the highest quality. Project WET is the best resource for teachers looking for curriculum on water. Additional resources provided by the Water Education Foundation are also excellent. I distribute these materials to teachers who are thrilled by the expertise evidenced by their breadth and quality. I have been associated with the foundation for many years and always found their personnel to be knowledgeable and helpful. It has been a pleasure to work with them.

As a life-long environmental educator I have been very impressed with the Water Education Foundation's school education program, Project WET (Water Education for Teachers). The lessons are of the highest quality in terms of content, balance and ease of use by educators. The Foundation has served as the state wide coordinating agency for California since the program's inception over 20 years ago. Their coordinator does an outstanding job of reaching out to educators as well as water agencies and environmental education networks to form partnerships to help make these excellent, fun-filled water education activities available to a huge percentage of California students. The commitment of the Foundation to this continuing school outreach program is admirable.
