EnviroScape® Coastal vividly demonstrates pollution sources and pollution prevention in a coastal area. Explore the 3D Coastal landscape with hands-on activities that bring to life impacts on wetlands, estuaries, oceans, beaches, barrier islands, groundwater, coral reefs, shellfish beds and more. Includes underground storage tanks, storm drains, septic system, effects of an oil spill, dredging a channel... and even a resort community handling its own waste. Model communicates to all ages (children to adults)!
Fill the ocean, harbor, estuary, marina and other waterways with water and rain over the different areas. Watch the flow of rainwater pick up pollutants along the way – pollutants such as soil (cocoa) and chemicals (drink mixes), trash and other contaminants are used.
Also demonstrate –
• a leaking underground storage tank contaminating groundwater
• the difference between storm drains and a home that is connected to a septic system
• how a resort community may handle their own waste
• effects of an oil spill
• dredging a channel
PLUS – you can demonstrate pollution prevention methods for all these sources and more!

EnviroScape Coastal has gone through improvements from the initial release with areas on the landscape labeled and a shallower ocean which requires less water and makes it easier to drain.
