Columbia, SC--Richland County educators are invited to borrow the Enviroscape watershed model for classroom and youth group presentations. The model may be borrowed for a one-week period, and the borrower is responsible for the model's pickup and return.
The Enviroscape is a three-dimensional watershed model that allows students to visualize how water and pollutants travel through the landscape. The model depicts stormwater runoff and can be used to illustrate various types of water pollution and the effects of human activity on the environment. Enviroscape landscape features include a farm, factory, golf course, parking lot, roads, residential areas, and more. Visit the Enviroscape website for more details about the model, or watch this YouTube video for a tutorial.
The Enviroscape comes in a portable suitcase with the landscape model, cocoa and koolaid powder "pollutants," spray bottles, figurines for cars, trees, houses, livestock, and more. A user guide and laminated cards describing sources of water pollution are also included.
