This hands-on, interactive model shows how water and pollution moves through the watershed. Using colored “pollutants,” children can watch as the water moves down into the source water from other areas. The EnviroScape is great for any age. For younger children, the definitions of watershed and pollution can be introduced, while best management practices (BMPs) will be added for older children to show ways we keep the watershed clean.
In this activity, a small pool will have aquatic life and trash. Kids will learn how trash is harmful to the water. Then they get to use fishing nets to help clean up our watershed by removing the trash.
Come learn about the watershed, and which items are healthy or unhealthy for the watershed. Educators will talk the kids through on if each category is good or bad, using descriptive language. Most kids will be surprised by what is actually considered healthy for the watershed.
A great game for future engineers, this activity challenges players to use a variety of pipes and connections to direct water from a water storage tank to Greenville’s homes and businesses. The pipes need to be constructed well, or else we’ll have a main break!
The memory challenge is suitable for all ages, whether you want to play on your own or play with or against a friend. This game is perfect for indoor and outdoor use and builds camaraderie in the spirit of competition. A great way to learn about Greenville Water and what we do and strengthen young minds.
Greenville Water’s pygmy goats are exciting guests to bring to your event. These team members help with sustainably maintaining the Greenville Watersheds by eating invasive plant species.
