Stormwater Maui to offer youth learning activities
Stormwater Maui will offer hands-on activities to youth at the Maui Ocean Center’s Discovery Plaza from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 20, Oct. 15 and Dec. 21.
The activities are designed to help youth learn more about protecting Maui’s marine environment through stormwater awareness and pollution prevention.
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. Pollutants that get into Maui’s stormwater can cause significant damage to the island’s ecosystems. Youth will also learn tips on how to prevent pollution generated from everyday actions and win prizes for participating.
Maui Ocean Center entry fees apply, but there is no additional charge to participate in the Stormwater Maui activities.
