Water Discovery Center Events/Calendar

August 25, 2007

The grand unveiling of signage and a new logo for the proposed $25 million
Water Discovery Center drew an enthusiastic crowd on Saturday on the crossroads in Arkville.

Water fans braved the swelter to learn about a visionary new exhibit and educational center that could flood the Catskills-Delaware Watershed with more than $11 million a year while teaching an entire generation of children from all over the Northeast about the earth's most precious and most fragile commodity: water.

The CWC presented a $1 million dollar grant to the Water Discovery Center Board. The Center will use the funds to continue its capital campaign, including hiring an executive director to take on the fundraising challenge.

Paul Sherlock, a United Nations water expert, spoke to the crowd, outlining global water supply challenges and endorsing the Center's mission.
