2019 NOAA California Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program: California B-WET funds locally relevant, authentic experiential learning for K-12 audiences through Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs). MWEEs involve learning both outdoors and in the classroom as students engage in issue definition, outdoor field experiences, synthesis and conclusions, and action projects. The goal is to increase understanding and stewardship of the ocean, its local watersheds, and special areas like national marine sanctuaries. Projects advance the Next Generation Science Standards, the California Environmental Literacy Standards, and the Ocean and Climate Literacy Essential Principles. The terms used throughout each Section are defined as follows: a. Monterey Bay watershed—the counties of San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey, San Benito, and San Luis Obispo; b. San Francisco Bay watershed—the counties of Marin, San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity, Napa and Santa Rosa; c. Santa Barbara Channel watershed—the counties of Santa Barbara and Ventura; d. Teachers—formal (school-based) and non-formal (not school-based) educators for kindergarten through high school; e. Students—kindergarten through high school.
