Hands on erosion experiment with the Springfield Museums

Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – Jenny Powers from the Springfield Museums joined us to demonstrate how ground cover and plants can prevent erosion.

Powers used small rocks, some protected with a layer of artificial roots and plants. With water, Powers demonstrated how these plants and roots keep the rocks in place. Powers stated that we can help the environment and prevent erosion by planting trees and ground cover in our yards and community.
