The Chester Ridley Crum Watersheds Association in Chester and Delaware counties and Penn State University-Brandywine invite area residents to join them on February 28 for “Backyard Solutions for Healthy Streams: Lessons from Philadelphia’s Green City, Clean Waters Program.”
The talk begins at 2:00 pm at Penn State-Brandywine’s Tomezsko Building auditorium and features Maggie Dunn of the Philadelphia Water Department. The program is free and open to the public and advance registration is recommended due to limited space.
“Backyard Solutions for Healthy Streams” will highlight the innovative approaches being used in the City of Philadelphia on residential properties to reduce polluted runoff and improve water quality in streams.
“Green City, Clean Waters is showing that even owners of small residential lots can take meaningful steps to improve the water quality in their local streams,” said CRC’s Executive Director, Brian Byrnes. “We are thrilled to give residents in Delaware and Chester Counties an opportunity to see what is working in the city and gather ideas on how they can contribute in their communities.”
