Splash into Water!
We love the preschool crowd! A field trip to the Water Resource Center is a fun way for students to learn all about water. Join us for a water-themed story and a hands-on learning activity. Then, rotate through learning stations to explore our local water cycle, where our drinking water comes from, and the importance of clean water to sustain all life on Earth.
Within COVID-19 guidelines, we're opening the Water Resource Center for small group visits. This is a great option for homeschool groups, scout troops and small classrooms. Located at 1004 N Freya Street, typical visits to the Water Resource Center are 1.5 hours.
