Through an innovative new partnership with the Kentucky Division of Water (KDOW), the Kentucky Association of Environmental Educators (KAEE) will now be providing the daily operational activities of Project WET in Kentucky.  KDOW will continue to serve as the Host Institution of Project WET and provide essential funding for the program as well as a limited number of teacher stipends and curricula guides.  For more information about current workshops or scheduling a workshop near you, please contact Brittany Wray (Brittany@kaee.org).
 
About Project WET
 
The Project WET Foundation (PWF) is an international not-for-profit water resources education program. Project WET�s goal is to provide scientifically accurate and educationally sound water resources education materials, training courses, and networking services to citizens, organizations, governments and corporations. PWF partners with organizations that share its mission, goal and the following core beliefs:
  • Water is important to all water users.
  • Water management is crucial for providing social and economic stability in a healthy environment.
  • Awareness of, and respect for, water resources can encourage a personal lifelong commitment of responsibility and positive community participation.
The Project WET host institution in Kentucky is KDOW within the Department for Environmental Protection. The Project WET program is sponsored in Kentucky by KDOW's Watershed Management Branch through a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Grant C9994861) under provisions of Section 319 (h) of the Federal Clean Water Act of 1987, as amended.
