Out of the abundance of caution, we are currently not scheduling any in-person tours, outreach events or in-person speaking engagements. The safety and well-being of our staff and community members is a top priority. Our staff are available for virtual presentations, calls and discussions about many topics! Interested in hosting a speaker in your virtual classroom or community group? Fill out the speaker request form!
In the meantime, feel free to browse our Community section of our website for more information about current projects, story maps and seasonal information!
The Aquiary is a destination for Loudoun area students, teachers and parents to learn about wetlands, water conservation and water treatment in Loudoun County. Loudoun Water staff are always excited to share our passion for water in the community, which is why we offer guided tours during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) for school groups, clubs and civic groups. In addition to 3,500 square feet of indoor exhibit space, the Aquiary has over one mile of outdoor interpretive trails that are open to the public from dawn until dusk every day.
In the past year, we've had over 700 students of all ages tour our Aquiary. Loudoun Water has hosted students ranging from elementary school-aged to college students studying Environmental Science and Biology. Have a question about our exhibit or tours?
