About the Boise WaterShed
The Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center promotes water stewardship through high-tech, hands-on exhibits. Located at the West Boise Wastewater Treatment Facility, the LEED-certified building also features a library, a theater/community room, and amazing artwork.
Visitors may drop-in during normal business hours to explore the free, interactive exhibit hall and outdoor art. We also offer free programs for families and groups every third Saturday of each month that showcase thematic presentations and hands-on activities from our community partners. A public wastewater tour is also offered.
Groups of 10 or more people may request free tours and lessons that engage students with hands-on activities and visits to the Boise River or nearby Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve. Lessons are designed for preschool through adult audiences and are aligned with curriculum standards. If you can't come to our place, we can come to yours. We offer free outreach programs for organizations located in Boise, Garden City, Meridian, and Eagle.
The Boise WaterShed is a partnership between the Boise Public Works Department and the non-profit organization, Boise WaterShed Exhibits, Inc.
