The Philadelphia Water Department isn't just interested in managing stormwater at schools—we're leveraging opportunities to create outdoor classrooms that connect students to their environment. Join us on Monday, March 30 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. for Green City, Clean Waters: A Case Study for Greening Schoolyards in Philadelphia, a webinar presented by Toronto-based urban environmental organization Evergreen.
Lois Brink, chief strategist for the Big Sandbox, will share the successes of the Philadelphia Green Schools Alliance and discuss the creation of vibrant green spaces at our urban schools. Matthew Fritch, an environmental engineer with PWD, will detail the greenSTEM Network—an educational initiative to connect students to schoolyard rain gardens via low-cost, real-time sensor technology.
Registration for the webinar is free.
