The Boise WaterShed’s primary goal is to educate the public about water and watershed stewardship. Whether you’re a teacher looking for field trip options or an individual with a passion for lifelong learning, the Boise WaterShed has something to offer you. We hope you find these resources valuable to expanding the lessons that the Boise WaterShed offers.
The Library Resource Center is filled with books, videos, curriculum books, and kits that teachers can reserve for their use.
Check out our lessons and tours for fun, interactive classes for grades Pre-K to 12. We have student worksheets available for the Exhibit Hall tour, Wastewater Treatment Plant tour, and a coloring book that explores the art and messages in and around the center.
