B-WET Project: Bay Watershed Education and Training
Channel Islands LIve: Ventura County, 2009-2012

For the past four years, Ventura County Office of Education (VCOE) has been one of a handful of agencies to receive funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) under its California Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program. This program provides funds to support environment-based education throughout the watersheds of San Francisco Bay, Monterey Bay, and Santa Barbara Channel.

Along with the Channel Islands National Park, the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary and other regional agencies, VCOE is working with area teachers to provide students with the opportunity to explore one of the most diverse marine environments in the world through an integrated learning experience that is supported by standards-based, interactive curriculum, active participation in monitoring and gathering data on the local environment and live interaction with researchers working in and around Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary.

We are currently starting our fifth year of this project.
