The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Boise WaterShed's mission is to promote water stewardship by teaching people of all ages how to protect and conserve our precious resources for future generations.
The Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center features innovative, hands-on exhibits and programs that will introduce visitors to the water cycle, the historic use of water, the wastewater treatment process, and how we can all become watershed stewards.
Located at the West Boise Wastewater Treatment Plant, Boise WaterShed is a LEED building certified Gold by the US Green Building Council. Its Theater and Library enhance the visitor experience, while the dramatic art pieces and landscaped grounds complete the Boise WaterShed's message of conservation and preservation.
The Boise WaterShed is a public/private partnership between Boise City Public Works and the non-profit organization, Boise WaterShed Exhibits, Inc. Community leaders and organizations have been joined by supporting corporations, foundations, and individuals who recognize the importance of the critical message the Boise WaterShed delivers.
