The Problem

Our project involves learning about the watershed in which we live-the Wissahickon Watershed- assessing and monitoring the creek’s health on an ongoing basis, and improving the health of the Wissahickon Creek and watershed through various activities such as clean-ups, leaf-pack introduction to provide for macroinvertebrate habitat, and community education and outreach.

Our Plan

Our group will do monthly assessments, clean-ups and educational outreach in the Wissahickon Creek and watershed.
