“H2-WHOA!” is a fun, interactive exhibit that teaches visitors about what lies below the surface of their local water resources.
Walk through and around a 10’ fabric dome to learn how flora and fauna, such as fresh water mussels and lichens, serve as indicator species.
A hands-on, interactive station demonstrates how pollution and sediment have negative effects on fish and other animals. Learn how to contribute to water conservation efforts and answer a call to action to “Take the Pledge” to protect local water resources.
