Join us for an afternoon of special drop-in programming about rivers and watersheds. Dip your hands into our 10-foot stream table and contribute to a collaborative art activity as we learn how rivers form and what it takes to keep these vital parts of our environment healthy. How does pollution spread? How do we limit erosion? How do different forms of settlement and land use affect a river? Build a river and watch what happens during a flood.

Free, no registration required. Recommended age: 5 and up.

This event is offered in partnership with the University of Michigan Museum of Art and the Watershed exhibition.
