The Water Beneath Our Feet: FREE Teacher Workshop

Come spend a day with USGS scientists and education staff from the Water Education Foundation and Mojave Environmental Education Consortium to learn more about the Mojave River aquifer and walk away with activities that will help bring the real-life science back into your classrooms and the role you and students can play in conserving our water resources. Each participant attending this training will receive: a FREE copy of the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide, a variety of other supplemental materials- and a free breakfast & lunch!

The goal of the California Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) program is to promote the awareness, appreciation, and knowledge of California’s water resources in a manner that is fun, hands-on and informational for learners of all ages. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is the principal source of scientific and technical expertise in the earth sciences within the Federal Government. Ground-water investigations are carried out by more than 150 USGS field offices throughout the United States, including within the Mojave River and Morongo Basins. This is a great opportunity for educators to meet water specialists directly and answer any questions that you may have on ground water and related topics.
