Drop in anytime to check out Willow Bend's new 3-D Watershed and Terrain Model for Flagstaff and surrounding regions!
Also on display is our new "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.
Join us every first Saturday between 9am-12pm for family oriented activities at the Center. Each month we will host guest experts, and have fun activities focused on different themes.
Here are some of the topics we featured last year:
Bats of Arizona: Hang out with the Willow Bend staff as we have a look at Arizona’s bats.
Birds of the Rio de Flag: Willow Bend is a birding hotspot. Come learn all about our feathered friends.
A Look Into the Past: Discover artifacts from the Hisatsinom and learn how they lived long ago.
