The WaterShed

The Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center promotes water stewardship through exhibits, Public Art, and programming. Located at the West Boise Water Renewal Facility, the LEED-certified building features an exhibit hall, a library, a theater/community room, and amazing artwork. The two acres surrounding the education center, known as the River Campus, is a park-like experience that integrates Public Art, exhibits, landscaping and a water feature that tells the story of our watershed.
