Science Saturday: “The Schuylkill River & You!”

October 28 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

MommyBloggers_082114_070Discover the many ways we are connected to the Schuylkill River, and how we can protect these waters from the harmful effects of water pollution.

Rivers provide drinking water and a habitat for wildlife. Join us at the river’s edge as we explore our past and present relationship with the Schuylkill River in particular and our environmental impact. Activities include:

  • “Fishing Around” – Survey the number of fish and species in your “river” to help determine how polluted it is.
  • “Where Does the Water Go?” – Follow the journey of water from the river, to our treatment plants, and to your home!
  • “Your Impact on the Schuylkill” – Learn how to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of trash you produce. Make the pledge to protect our river!
