Professor Gizmo and birds from the Raptor Center are also part of the evenings activities.
The Environmental Services booth will have EnviroScape which is a model part of a town to use as a learning tool about stormwater runoff. Industries are point source pollutants.
What are some nonpoint source pollutants?
Here are a few:
soil erosion from a construction site
fertilizer from a yard or golf course
dog waste (bacteria and organics)
dripped oil from a vehicle
dirt from a roof
waste from a farm
grass clippings and leaves from a lawn in the street
soap from washing a vehicle on an impervious surface
If you would like us to come visit a school group or club in Superior and bring along this interactive model, just let us know.
Can you think how a town could help reduce stormwater pollution runoff?
