The Time and the Valleys Museum in Sullivan County in the Catskills will host “Discover WATER!,” a program about watersheds, the water cycle and anything to do with Catskills water, set for Sunday, June 26th.
This program will feature the Museum’s new Augmented Reality Watershed Sandbox, an interactive computer experience on a large sandbox where visitors can mold the sand and create colorful and changing landscapes, make it rain with the wave of their hand, and see how water flows and changes people’s lives and homes.
Other activities include:
- Seeing the water cycle in action and coloring your own;
- Creating a mini-watershed with colored water to take home;
- Playing in water and learning about hydropower energy and water wheels;
- Doing water puzzles and activity sheets; and
- Exploring the interactive exhibitions Tunnel Toil and Trouble: NYC’s Quest for Water and the Rondout-Neversink Story and Water and the Valleys.
Visitors will be able to explore all three floors of Museum exhibitions, the 1930s Catskill Farm with a farm house and four outbuildings, and the gift shop with books, crafts, toys and gifts.
This program will take place from 1 to 3 pm. Admission is $5 adults and $2 children under 16 and Museum Members free. The Time and the Valleys Museum is located on St. Rt. 55 in Grahamsville, Sullivan County.
