Vancouver, WA's Water Resources Education Center - Second Saturday (tomorrow)

Tomorrow is one of the Second Saturdays at the City of Vancouver’s Water Resources Education Center. From 1 to 3 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month, kids can explore a water or nature theme and make a project or two to take home.

February 14th's project is "For the Love of Trees," as in: celebrate Valentine’s Day by exploring our love for and appreciation of trees. Make creations that remind us how wonderful trees are and all that they do for us. Find out how they benefit animals and our urban environment.

The Water Center is located at 4600 SE Columbia Way. Open during the week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and admission is free. Youth need to be accompanied by an adult. You can check their Web site for more information but I'm telling you--it needs to be updated. Tell them I said so. The only reason I know about this event is I'm on an email list. Try calling 360-487-7115 on the good ol' fashioned telephone for holiday and event schedules.
