Dive into the world of water and climate science and learn how you can help protect and conserve our resources through indoor and outdoor exhibits. The education center contains more than 15 hands-on exhibits, a library and theater. The 2-acre park-like River Campus features a simulated river where kids can splash and get wet.
The WaterShed is transforming into the nation's first climate and water science center! The all-ages, hands-on exhibits will explore themes of our changing watershed and how you can take action to help make our community more resilient to the effects of climate change.
The WaterShed exhibit hall and outdoor River Campus will be closed to the public August 23, 2023 through late June 2024 for exhibit installation. We will be sharing our progress on social media and we hope you'll follow along.
During the closure, we will be offering limited programming, including:
Visitors may drop in during normal business hours without a reservation. Groups of more than 10 people must make a reservation at least two weeks in advance. Some programs and events require tickets to limit event sizes. Please check our calendar for specific event information.
