The River Campus is a continuation of the educational facility of the Boise WateShed; an interactive education center located at the central waste water treatment plant in Boise Idaho. The three acre campus is dedicated to providing outdoor learning opportunities about the regional watershed system through interactive exhibits and public art. Through a dynamic Design Team effort, several public and private stakeholders came together to vision and design the campus which re-creates in an abstract and poetical way the Boise River watershed system from headwaters to the confluence wth the Snake River. The campus holds the single largest concentration of public art in Idaho with nine artists completing projects that help inspire visitors to look at the incredible ways in which their lives interact with water and have a direct environmental impact on the watershed.
