About the Enviroscape Model
The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium (Consortium) offers use of their Wetlands Enviroscape Model free-of-charge to any S.C. K-12, nonformal, and homeschool educator.
The Wetlands Enviroscape Model provides a hands-on demonstration about how watersheds can be affected by development, pollution, and other natural and human-made impacts. Included as part of the demonstration are ways in which potential pollution impacts can be mitigated (e.g., riparian buffers and salt marshes).
Requesting the Enviroscape
The Enviroscape model comes with all of the pieces and parts needed to conduct the demonstration as well as an educator guide.
While there is no cost to borrow the model, it is the responsibility of the person who borrows it to arrange for pick-up and delivery of the model from the Consortium office in Charleston, S.C, to ensure that all of the parts are returned undamaged, and that the model has been thoroughly cleaned and dried. If you are requesting to use the Enviroscape and you are not in the Charleston area, Consortium staff will assist you with finding a location in your area where you may borrow the model.
