Water wise: Brightwater Center in Woodinville
At Brightwater Center’s 70-acre campus in Woodinville, a wastewater treatment plant co-exists with a nature preserve that has been restored to its native vegetation, which includes wetlands, meadows and forest. At the center, kids and adults can learn all about our water system through interactive exhibits for all ages. Outside, three miles of trails meander through wildlife habitat.
Activities: The grounds at Brightwater are free to roam and open daily, dawn to dusk. Brightwater Center is open to the public Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., offering a variety of seasonal tours and activities. Baindbridge Island-based Islandwood also partners with Brightwater to offer community programs at the Brightwater grounds.
