Families will have hands-on opportunities to understand how watersheds work, what archaeology can tell us about the past and how art can connect the history of the past to the conservation of resources for the future, according to a news release.
Reuter will have one of her glass cairns on display, as well as watershed photographs taken by Joshua Rowan. Children will have the opportunity to make marbles which may be included in Reuter and Rowan's future artwork.
