California Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET)

Ocean Guardian school logo

The CA B-WET program will not be providing funding for Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience grants in Fiscal Year 2024. Due to our commitment to existing grants, we do not have enough funding to run a full competition. However, we are looking at ways to build capacity to implement climate change education in the classrooms, therefore some funds may be spent on addressing current gaps in climate change professional development and outreach.

Bringing the Environment into Classrooms in a Meaningful Way!

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" (PDF) 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.
