Water wise: Brightwater Center, Woodinville

At Brightwater Center’s 70-acre campus in Woodinville, a wastewater treatment plant coexists 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 designed 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. Check the events calendar for Brightwater happenings and treatment plant tours.
