Exploring The Enviroscape

Berkeley Heights
Educators from the Great Swamp visited the Berkeley Heights campus to bring students a hands-on water quality testing program. With a demonstration using their Enviroscape three-dimensional model of a community, and a topographic model of the Great Swamp Watershed, students learned about the “real” water cycle. The presentation included discussions of what a watershed is, where our drinking water comes from, where our waste water goes, point versus nonpoint source pollution, human impacts on local waterways, and best practices to reduce our impact on local waterways. This visit will be followed up by a field trip in the Spring!
