Gwinnett Environmental Heritage Center – Buford, GA
This environmental education complex focuses on human interaction. The exhibits (8,500sf) explore the natural and cultural history of Gwinnett County with an emphasis on water usage over time.
The visit begins in the “Blue Planet” theater, an immersive multi-media experience that takes visitors on the journey of water and its life-sustaining properties. “Water Ways” allows a visitor to go back in time, to discover how their ancestors used water and interacted with environment. Interpretive vignettes, media, environmental sound, and contextual objects tell the stories. “ Water Wise” challenges children and adults to test their own water habits and explore new water and energy saving materials and technologies. The “Discover H20” gallery is a place to get wet! Here visitors of all ages can be hands-on with the power of water and even take a trip down the drain.
