In July of 2012, Wickiup Hill was awarded a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to complete a water table as part of the Everyone Lives in a Watershed exhibit at Wickiup Hill. After several months of planning with department staff, Boss Display of Columbus, OH is currently installing the water table at Wickiup Hill.
This exhibit is centered on improving watershed management through interactive displays. Following interaction with the exhibit, watershed table, and associated educational materials, visitors will be able to define a watershed, understand that everyone lives in a watershed, identify good and bad watershed practices, and understand that there are actions everyone can take to better manage water and that poor watershed decisions result in flooding and deteriorating water quality.
Watch for additional information regarding when the exhibit will be open to the public.
