An Investment in SLEWS Legacy
The 2016-2017 school year marked the 15th anniversary of the SLEWS Program. Over the years, SLEWS successfully operated with little private funding. However, grant funding and contracts don't always reward successful programs and critical outcomes, like we have seen with the SLEWS Program.

For this reason, the SLEWS Legacy Fund was established to raise private dollars to support the SLEWS Program in the San Joaquin and Sacramento Valley regions, as well as the SLEWS Academy, which trains organizations around the state in the program's best practices, and ensures local community engagement and priorities. The Legacy Fund provides increased flexibility to our staff and partners in choosing program sites and schools for participation.

SLEWS students have direct interaction with farmers, ranchers, and environmental scientists, helping them gain a deep understanding of how agriculture interacts with the environment, ensuring working lands remain viable for future generations.

A SLEWS Legacy investment impacts more than our local agricultural lands.
The SLEWS Academy is growing the program beyond Northern California, spreading the SLEWS model and impacting even more California landscapes. Since 2014, the SLEWS Academy has trained 5 organizations, resulting in an additional 360 student participants in 8 counties. In the next several months, three more organizations will be trained, reaching an additional 100+ students per year.
