Visit the Center

Drop in during our open hours (Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm) and check out the Discovery Room, the 3-D Watershed and Terrain Model, and our fun and unique artifacts. Always best to call ahead, just in case we are out teaching or have a field trip taking place.

Currently on display

“A Drop of Water” exhibit. In northern Arizona we depend on groundwater supplies for the water that we use in our everyday lives (drinking, cooking, irrigation, bathing.) To help understand how precious our water is, find and follow the drop of water falling from the sky as rain, infiltrating into the ground through soil and rock, and then pumped out and supplied to the community. It is a long and unlikely journey for a drop of water falling from the sky to reach the aquifer. Thank you to W.L Gore and Associates, the Flagstaff Community Foundation and its Collaborators, and private donations that have supported this project.
