Welcome to the Water Center!

Whether exploring our Website or visiting our beautiful facility overlooking the Columbia River in Vancouver, you'll find a world of information designed to inspire us to become better stewards of our water resources. Teaching people of all ages how to wisely use this important, life-giving natural resource is what Vancouver's Water Resources Education Center is all about.

Celebrate Critters on April 8

Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 8, when Vancouver’s Water Resources Education Center celebrates its 17th annual Critter Count with finding and watching various critters. Start Saturday morning at 9 a.m. by counting critters in their natural habitat. Then, see more critters up close at two live shows (1 p.m. & 2 p.m.) with snakes, lizards and other reptiles!
