Cedar River Watershed Education Center

“The Cedar River Watershed Education Center: Connecting people to the source of Seattle’s drinking water, its unique cultural and natural history, inspiring confidence, stewardship and sustainability.

The Cedar River Watershed Education Center is located along the shores of Rattlesnake Lake. Both are owned and managed by Seattle Public Utilities. Built in 2001, its architecture is a model of sustainability – from sod roof to recycled rubber flooring. Sweeping view of Rattlesnake Ledge can be seen from the observation decks, while native plants flourish in the Rain Drum Courtyard.

The Welcome Room creates a relaxing and comfortable atompshere to browse books and watch children play. At the front desk, staff are available to answer questions. The free, award-winning Water is Magic Exhibits create a joyful learning experience. On designated days you can delve deep into watershed history in the Heritage Library.

Programs are offered throughout the year for all ages, interests, and abilities. To see what’s coming up, please visit the Cedar River Watershed Programs & Tours >
