Rolling Rivers Stream Trailer:
This trailer is ready to provide water education to residents of all ages in Lincoln County! A stream table on wheels, this trailer can demonstrate not only stream dynamics but watershed principles as well.
Loaded with several hundred pounds of re-cycled material to create sand and a self-contained tank for pumping and re-circulating water, a meandering river is created. Small figures of farm animals and wildlife, farm equipment and heavy construction equipment are placed on the sand. Trees and brush are added to the riverbank. When the water is turned on, the water flows down the water channel. By increasing the velocity of the water, removing the brush and trees from along the river, the demonstration shows the power of water including what happens when a river bank erodes.
