This is a great example of a weather-proof outdoor, topographic scale model that features an actual water circulation system. It is mounted on a trailer and taken to community events and classrooms.
The model serves to demonstrate the watershed process, enhancing ecological literacy in community groups and schools. This is a great use of a topographic model in an educational setting. Being designed for outdoor use, it will withstand fading and almost any kind of weather.
