Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program
B-WET Grant Program
The Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program was established in 2002 to create environmentally literate students and teachers through education. The program supports NOAA's goal of developing a well-informed citizenry involved in decision-making that positively impact our coastal, marine and watershed ecosystems. B-WET is sponsored by NOAA's Office of Education with programs in the Hawaiian Islands, the Chesapeake Bay, and California. Expansion efforts have included states in the Gulf of Mexico, Northeast and the Pacific Northwest.
The B-WET Hawai`i Program is an environmental education program that promotes locally relevant, experiential learning in the K-12 environment on priority topics, such understanding climate change, earth sciences and community resilience to hazards. The B-WET Hawai`i competitive grants are awarded annually to fund projects that provide meaningful watershed educational experiences for students, related professional development for teachers, and support regional education and environmental priorities.
