Are you a high school student looking for exciting programs to be a part of this summer?
Schuylkill Acts and Impacts is a weeklong service-learning expedition that will be offered to high school students from communities within the Schuylkill River Watershed. From Saturday, June 7 to June 14, students will travel the 120-mile Schuylkill River from its headwaters in anthracite coal lands of Schuylkill County to its confluence with the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Participants will be guided downriver, where they will learn about issues impacting water quality.
The expedition includes:
- Paddling stretches of the river with biologists to conduct water quality monitoring
- Touring abandoned and active coal mines
- Visiting farms to examine stream bank erosion
- Exploring the streets of Philadelphia to learn more about their pioneering work in mitigating stormwater
This is an opportunity that you don’t want to miss out on!
