There are lots of interactive things to do while you are learning about the subjects of watersheds etc. Great place for kids to learn about conservation and preservation of the water resources and electricity.

The Water Resource Center is such an amazing place. They host many activities throughout the year and most are FREE. If you're child is interested in rivers, fish, water or just likes getting their hands dirty, this is the place to visit. A favorite activity they host each year is the Critter Count. Check their calendar for upcoming events.

In good weather your kids can visit and feed the ducks in the creek outside!! For those looking for a venue for a large group... More

Hey what can I say, take the kids and learn a little on a rainy day, there is no charge to visit, small but something to do when you cant find anything else.
