Water resources play an imperative role in our everyday lives. The Water Resources Education Center provides an informative and interactive experience for people of all ages on how we can protect these important natural gifts by taking care not only with what’s inside but also outside: limiting wastefulness, practicing recycling often (and gladly), being thankful when there is rain or snow because it ensures clean water supply even if you don’t notice any artificial pipes beneath your feet. The WRENC team offers fun educational programs designed to teach youth between 5-12 years old about environmental issues facing today’s generation, including climate change and species extinction.
The City of Vancouver was once a small village with only 600 people living in it. At this time, water pollution from factories or farms didn’t seem like an issue as few sources produced these harmful chemicals, which led to poor health for those living near them.

Opened in 1996, this center has been educating residents around the Vancouver, WA area for over 20 years by providing informative programs on everything related to our most valuable resource.
