EGLE Lending Station

The EGLE Lending Station allows educators to borrow materials that engage students in real-life Great Lakes-based education with hands-on learning. The EnviroScapes, Sand & Gravel Simulator models, and H2O Q Kits (water quality backpacks) are available for lending to your classroom or organization. The lending items can support educators by relating their hands-on water quality lessons and allowing students to see how contamination impacts groundwater, surface water, watersheds and the Great Lakes.
