The Project WET USA Network—an instruction and delivery network consisting of local and state partner organizations, coordinators and facilitators (master trainers) in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia—has trained millions of school and community educators since its inception in 1991. These school and community educators in turn reach tens of millions people of all ages with objective, science-based water resources education that fosters awareness and inspires action. In all, there are more than 70 U.S. “host institutions” and an equal number of local Project WET Coordinators, along with more than 3,000 trained facilitators.
Six-hour workshops that teach educators of all varieties to us the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 are the centerpiece of Project WET USA’s training program. In addition to Guide workshops, many host institutions also offer training for WOW! The Wonders of Wetlands, Healthy Water, Healthy People, Conserve Water and the Discover a Watershed series. See a list of workshops or find a host institution near you.
