Watershed Tour


Boise WaterShed

The Boise WaterShed offers programs and resources for adults.  From art and science workshops to excursions around the watershed, we offer something for everyone.

WaterShed Studio: Held the last Friday of each month
These adults only classes are taught by a team of experts and local artists who will explore a topic and then lead you in creating a unique art piece inspired by the evening’s topic. Pre-registration is required, $15 per class, call 208-608-7680 or register online.

Groups of 10 or more adults may request a tour of the education center, public art collection, or a virtual water renewal facility.  Additionally, groups aligned with Boise WaterShed's mission may rent the theater for meetings and educational events at no cost.

For educators and home school parents, there are Project WET professional development workshops and a Resource Library with kits and books to help you bring water-related lessons into your classroom. 

For Lifelong Learners, we currently have on-demand online programs to view here.
