Through interactive and educational models depicting a coastal watershed and Maui’s storm drain system, participants will be able to mimic rainfall and stormwater flow to visualize how pollutants can be carried from their various sources, into storm drains, and eventually out to the ocean and other bodies of water, where they can cause significant damage to the island’s ecosystems. Youngsters can also gain tips on how to prevent pollution generated from our everyday actions and win fun prizes for participating.
