ENVIROSCAPE



Throughout the State of Georgia and the nation, the realization is dawning:  water is our most precious resource!  When you consider that we are drinking the SAME water the dinosaurs drank, that we ALL live downstream, and that water is NOT a renewable resource, it is easy to understand the need to conserve and protect our water resources.
 
Since we all live downstream from someone, water pollution is everyone’s concern.  With pollution coming from a wide variety of sources, it may surprise you to know there are things you can do to help prevent it, and to conserve and protect our water resource.
 
An EnviroScape is an exciting and interactive educational tool that addresses “point” and “non-point” sources of water pollution.  Everybody plays, and everybody learns from this one-of-a-kind demonstration project.  The portable, three-dimensional EnviroScape uses  “rain” from a spray bottle to show pollution coming from urban, rural and industrial areas.  The rain carries soil (cocoa), fertilizer and pesticides (powdered drink mix), and oil (more cocoa) downhill to a lake, where the effects of the pollution become plainly visible.  The watershed model then shows ways to help prevent non-point source pollution. 
 
The objective of the EnviroScape presentation is to use a balanced approach to clearly demonstrate individual responsibility for water pollution and its prevention. For according to  Baba Dioum, Senegal, “In the end, we will conserve only what we love.  We will love only what we understand.  We will understand only what we are taught.”
