The Spokane County Water Resource Center (WRC) is a regional educational facility with interactive displays related to area aquifer and river knowledge, water reclamation and many other water resource issues.
A WRC visit and a walking tour of the adjacent Spokane County Regional Water Reclamation Facility are separate events but can be combined. Appointments are necessary but we attempt to be flexible and available.
When you bring your class here, our goal is to provide lessons that will help you meet the applicable Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), aka Washington State Science Learning Standards (WSSLS), including practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas. Link to our Education Programs page to learn more.
Contact us to arrange a guided visit at the WRC (groups of 10 or more) with enhanced activities and optional Reclamation Facility tours. Visit the Education Programs page for all ages information or the Water Reclamation Facility page specifically for adult tours of the facility.
