Rivers provide drinking water and a habitat for wildlife. Discover the many ways you are connected to the Schuylkill River, and how you can protect these waters from the harmful effects of water pollution. Join Fairmount Water Works at the river’s edge and explore your past and present relationship with the Schuylkill River in particular and your 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 the 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!
