Boise WaterShed is a regional host of Project WET workshops. Project WET's mission is to reach children, teachers and community members of the world with education that promotes awareness of water and empowers community action to solve complex water issues.
By attending a Project WET workshop, participants receive the Project WET Curriculum Guide 2.0, which contains water resource education materials that are appropriate for many different age groups and cultures and offer comprehensive coverage of the broad topic of water. The Guide can only be obtained by attending a workshop in person or completing training on-line.
The workshop consists of a 15-hour training for educators of all levels, formal and non-formal, on diverse water topics so that those educators can reach children with objective, experiential , science-based water education.
