Water Education Program

The Sonoma County Water Agency’s Water Education Program reaches thousands of students every year with lessons and materials on water conservation and stewardship of our local watersheds. All curricula and instruction offered by the Water Education Program supports the Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards.

The Water Education Program is made possible through the Sonoma County Water Agency and the following local water providers: City of Santa Rosa, City of Rohnert Park, City of Cotati, City of Petaluma, City of Sonoma, North Marin Water District, Valley of the Moon Water District and the Town of Windsor. All of our materials and programs are free to schools within our service area in Sonoma and Northern Marin counties in California as these water providers fund the Water Education Program.

For general questions, please email us at WaterEd@scwa.ca.gov
