The WaterShed Environmental Education Center


Dive into the world of water and learn how you can help protect and conserve our resources.  The education center is a LEED-certified building that features hands-on exhibits, a theater, library and the largest collection of Public Art in Idaho.


The River Campus, located on the 2-acres surrounding the education center, tells the story of our watershed from source water to the Snake River through art, landscaping and a water feature. Experience being a water manager and releasing water from a dam, splashing in the open river channel and setting siphon tubes in the agricultural exhibit.  A sewer pipe play area and interactive trail with nature play stations make the River Campus a repeat destination for your family or group.


Enjoy free admission year-round and free events every third Saturday of each month that promote environmental stewardship with activities and tours.
