School Water Education Program
Solano County’s School Water Education Program (SWEP) provides FREE resources for teaching water awareness and conservation.
SWEP helps K-12 educators teach youth about conserving and protecting our water resources.
Help your students understand where our community’s water comes from, how it is used, how we can conserve it, and how we can protect our environment.
Book a class presentation, borrow a teaching kit, attend a teacher training, or get educational materials for your students for FREE! We support elementary, middle, and high school teachers.
Our SWEP Materials flier provides a list of all materials available to program participants. Contact SWEP Coordinator Laura Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-678-1655 x117 to arrange delivery directly to your school. You can also ask about booking class presentations, and loans of our many classroom kits.
All K-12 teachers and after-school programs in Solano County may use SWEP. The program is funded by Solano County cities and water suppliers.
Join us for the 2017 WET Workshop on February 25. Details here.
