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

REGION:  Middle Tennessee

WHERE: Lane Agri-Park Community Center, Murfreesboro

COST: Free

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.
