Join us in Summer 2024 for the 4th Solano Water Institute for Teachers. This four-day, field-trip-based workshop highlights the preservation of Solano County open spaces and the region's complex water resources, while providing first-hand experiential learning that teachers can share with their students for continued exploration.
