Water Education Center

Schedule a Tour

Beaver Water District’s Water Education Center — located at the Administration Center at 301 N. Primrose Road in Lowell, Ark. — is designed to educate both adults and children about the value of drinking water and stewardship of the watershed as a natural resource. The building and grounds offer many opportunities for education about drinking water treatment and watershed awareness. The Administration Center earned LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2010.

For example, signage pops up throughout the landscape in the form of beavers and frogs displaying water facts for discovery during the the Water Fun Facts Scavenger Hunt. Each year, several hundred children visit the Center on field trips to augment their classroom studies. The Water Education Center’s learning opportunities go hand-in-hand with the District’s K-12 programs for the schools. Tours are free and limited funding is available to assist with transportation. Up to 120 children may be accommodated in one visit. Use the Schedule a Tour button to start the process to bring a class or group of classes to the Center for a tour.
