Education Programs

The Water Resource Center provides a fantastic setting for interactive, NGSS-20190924_104201aligned learning.

The WRC educators provide locally-relevant water education to promote stewardship of water quality and quantity in the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer and the Spokane River.

Our goals for each class are to learn age-relevant concepts, to instill curiosity about water and our environment, and to have fun!

Topics taught at the WRC fall under two large categories -- water in natural systems and water in engineered systems.

Learn about the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie (SVRP) Aquifer and its connection with the Spokane River and surrounding lakes. Follow Drippy the Water Drop as he travels in our watershed but also when he enters the engineered water cycle and is used by humans.

Tours of the Water Reclamation Facility are excellent for secondary and higher education students to enhance chemistry and biology lessons and facilitate career development discussion with regard to water resource management.
