January 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


How do the day-to-day choices we make impact the water in our communities? Join IslandWood and King County at the Brightwater Education Center to explore our water systems! Working together with your family, you will use the engineering design process to explore the impacts that humans have on our wastewater system and design your own solution for cleaning water. Learn about the ways you interact with the water cycle, what is being done at Brightwater to clean the dirty water we produce and consider what could be done differently. This event does NOT include a treatment plant tour. Space is limited. Please pre-register to reserve your spot to this free event.
