Classroom Visits

Do you know how we're able to provide our great education programs for free to students and community members? We are funded by an Aquifer Protection Area (APA) fee. This is a voter-approved fee which goes toward many projects and initiatives that protect the Spokane Valley-Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer - the same aquifer that supplies drinking water to most residents in the greater Spokane area. This fee is anticipated to come up for renewal in the next few years. For more information about the fee, please visit the APA page.


Our educators are eager to visit your classroom! Weather-permitting, we'll also meet you on your playground or sports field where our activities will be very similar to our traditional lessons taught at the Water Resource Center.
