Wetland, Floodplain Management model gives understanding of bigger picture by representing it on a small scale

The EnviroScape Wetland and Floodplain Management model gives an understanding of the bigger picture by representing it on a small scale. Our EnviroScape Wetland and Floodplain Management model and Groundwater Liner kit, continue to provide a unique perspective in our water management educational outreach. The many campers and students to whom we present and facilitate programs, primarily 4th graders, learn about watersheds, wetlands and groundwater in a fun and exciting way. Having a Wetland model available for the youth, gives them the opportunity to manipulate and observe how the elements present in the environment and human interactions, affect our water ways, either positively or negatively. They become empowered as they realize the role they can serve in protecting our limited resources. Campers and students come away with a much deeper understanding of the concepts introduced by seeing the bigger picture represented on a small scale. The EnviroScape recent upgrade to the Wetland/Floodplain Management model will only strengthen this valuable education tool that proves itself year after year.
