It is hard to know what each child feels as they experience the Cedar River Watershed. Be sure to talk with them about their experience and most certainly create an opportunity to go experience it yourself.

Here is a bit of history about Rattlesnake Lake.
We fully enjoyed the Cedar River Watershed hands-on exhibit. Using numbered balls as water drops, the children tracked the water cycle from the ocean, rivers, plants, our homes, water treatment plants. CRW offers a "flow through the water cycle and journey through habitats and history, as you look, listen and do" that is truly engaging, entertaining, and educational.
Above are examples of the locals who share the water with us: juvenile elk, black-tail deer, black bear, and beaver skulls.
