Second Saturdays at the Water Resources Education Center are not only fun, they're free! Each second Saturday of the month, from 1 to 3 p.m., kids and their families are invited to explore a different topic through hands-on activities, games and stories. Create bird feeders and other crafts to welcome wildlife to your backyard! Learn about the amazing world of bubbles! Make a piece of art from reused materials! There's always something new waiting at Second Saturdays!

Please note: Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Rescheduled for January 21: Roll on Columbia!
The Water Resources Education Center is kicking off 2017 with a tribute to the watershed we call home — the mighty Columbia River Watershed. Have you ever wondered how big our watershed is and how it was formed? What animals call the Columbia home? How do humans depend on the watershed? Uncover answers to these questions and more with games, science experiments and crafts during this family-friendly afternoon of discovery and exploration. Roll on Columbia!
NOTE DATE CHANGE: Activities were rescheduled due to poor weather conditions the previous week.

February: Love your Backyard Birds
February is the perfect month to remember and show love to your backyard birds. It is also a good time to get ready for the Great Backyard Bird Count occurring Friday, Feb. 17, through Monday, Feb. 20. The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that encourages bird watchers of all ages to tally the number of birds seen and create a real-time snapshot of their locations. Enjoy fun, interactive activities related to birds.
