“DRainscapes” is a three-minute animation that explains the link between a single yard and the watershed system. The tools for slowing, sinking and spreading rainwater runoff are broken down into five simply illustrated categories. DRainscapes is now coupled with the Water Balance Model Express for Landowners to spark interest and a readiness to implement practices that ensure healthy and resilient watersheds for present and future generations to enjoy.
