Enviroscape Watershed Portable Models
H-GAC has three Enviroscape Watershed/Nonpoint Source Models available for loan for events and workshops.
The EnviroScape® series of portable models dramatically demonstrate water pollution concepts and their prevention. EnviroScape® effectively communicates our shared responsibility for the environment to people of all ages, languages and cultures. Our models are engaging and effective, as they create a real sense of understanding through experience and hands-on demonstration. EnviroScape® makes complex issues seem simple, helping people prevent water pollution in their own communities.
The three-dimensional landscapes (approx. 25" x 30" x 5") illustrate residential, recreational, agricultural, industrial and transportation areas — all representing possible sources of water pollution. Children and adults learn by using chemicals (drink mix) and loose soil (cocoa) throughout a typical community to see how their actions and those of others may affect our water quality. EnviroScape actually emphasizes pollution prevention with a follow-up demonstration that shows how to prevent such pollution through the use of best management practices.
