Stream Stewards Present at the Watershed Congress
March 31, 2017

Earlier this month, Urban Promise’s Stream Stewards Team presented their water research at the 2017 Watershed Congress along the Schuylkill River at Montgomery County Community College.  Stream Stewards members, Yasiria and Destiny created a poster presentation with their compiled water data from three sites along the Cooper River in Camden. They spoke to participants about their findings and environmental issues concerning urban waterways including air pollution, stormwater runoff, and non-point source pollution.  

 Through opportunities like this our students aren’t just digging deeper into what they’ve learned, but they are also developing important life skills like positive communication and gaining confidence while speaking.

 Big thanks to the Delware RiverKeeper’s Network for putting on a great event. We can’t wait till next year’s Watershed Congress!
