ExplorationWorks: It's all about Community

By: Paige Terhune, Visitor Services Manager

ExplorationWorks is so much more than science. It really is all about community! And that community involvement is shown most recently in our fantastic new water table. Visitors and long time members alike are saying how much they love the new water table, and have thanked ExWorks for bringing it to Helena. But it is really the entire Helena community that has made this wonderful water table possible, one Make a Splash fish at a time. We will all be so excited to see the unveiling of the 'fish mural wall' this Spring, which will highlight just how many incredible families we have in Helena who have absolutely made the water table possible.

Our community partnerships are another aspect of ExWorks that just shows how we all work together to make it possible for anyone to visit ExWorks. The libraries in Helena, East Helena, Boulder, and Clancy all now offer the Edventure Pass which can be checked out like a book for a family to visit ExWorks free of charge, whenever it is convenient for them and when their own schedule allows. 

We have an incredibly dedicated staff all working together to bring the best exhibits and programs to Helena that we possibly can. But it is you, the families of Helena, who truly make ExWorks a remarkable achievement in Montana!
