The Watershed Classroom Program is a 3-year recipient of the Bay-Watershed Education and Training Grant (B-WET) from the National Marine Sanctuaries Department of the federal National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The NOAA California Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program provides funds to support environment-based education throughout the watersheds of San Francisco Bay, Monterey Bay, and Santa Barbara Channel.

Funded projects provide "meaningful" watershed educational experiences to students, teachers, and communities.

Recognizing that an educated community is the key to understanding and sustaining the Nation's ocean and coastal environments, NOAA has developed B-WET into a national program.

Here is a list of our partners in the Watershed Classroom:
