Date:Saturday, December 2, 2017
Location: Fairmount Water Works (link to venue website)640 Water Works Drive Philadelphia, PA 19130
Discover 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!
