Rutherford County Farmers’ Market Fall Market and Arts Festival - Stormwater!

WHEN:  Friday, October 11, 7:00 AM - 12:00 PM

REGION:  Middle Tennessee

WHERE: Lane Agri-Park Community Center, Murfreesboro

COST: Free

WHAT:  
An “Enviroscape” models the surface of our Earth, complete with pollution and litter. Using spray bottles, participants, manipulate the amount of “rainfall” over an area, and carefully make observations (as a scientist) of the impact of the “rainfall.” Where does the Stormwater flow? Do above-ground surface conditions impact the groundwater reserve (which would be the source of drinking water for this model)? Highly interactive.
