Schuylkill Acts & Impacts Application DEADLINE EXTENDED!

New Deadline: FRIDAY, APRIL 24th, 2015 by 5:00 p.m.


Schuylkill Acts & Impacts is a weeklong service-learning program that will be offered to a team of fifteen high school students from communities within the Schuylkill River Watershed. This expedition will involve a physical journey (by kayak and van) along the 120-mile Schuylkill River from its headwaters in the anthracite coal lands of Schuylkill County to its confluence with the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Team leaders from Fairmount Water Works, Take It Outdoors Adventures and the Schuylkill Headwaters Association will guide students downriver, illustrating an array of issues impacting water quality in the Schuylkill River through guided tours, programming, and applied service work designed to highlight issues in the watershed and explore hands-on solutions to these problems.
