Water’s Extreme Journey

Ongoing
Included in General Admission
Wheelchair Accessible

Water’s Extreme Journey takes visitors on an exciting and important adventure quest for clean water. Experience the watershed as a water drop, exploring first-hand the science behind the water cycle and discovering how our daily decisions impact local wildlife and ecosystems.

Become a Rain Drop

Ride the 20-foot Watershed Zipline to experience the rush of a river and make your way through the Wetland Slow Zone on your way to the ocean. Sound easy? Water drops face many hurdles as they interact with humans.  Does the farm they encounter use pesticides? Did someone get messy changing their oil, or flush prescription drugs down the toilet? Clean choices keep our drops healthy and moving toward a clean ocean.  Dirty choices send our drops down the urban storm drain to the unhealthy ocean, where they evaporate, condensate, and precipitate for another try.

Art in Action

Write a letter, draw a picture, and share your ideas for making a positive impact on your local watershed. Your letters and artwork will be delivered to regional political figures in support of clean water initiatives, creating an immediate impact.
