Students Serve As Stream Stewards In Delaware County, Your School May Be Eligible

This spring, more than 1,200 students living in eastern Pennsylvania learned about the importance of protecting local waterways by participating in the PA Resources Council's Stream Stewards Program in Delaware County.
The program is a partnership with the Eastern Delaware County Stormwater Collaborative and is funded by a grant from Boeing.
Students began their instruction in an indoor classroom, where they learned about watersheds, freshwater ecology and consequences of daily actions.
During the second phase of the program, students took a field trip to conduct stream health surveys. In the "outdoor classroom," they collected, identified and released insect samples in addition to testing the stream’s water chemistry.
The Stream Steward Program, now completing its third year, encourages students to reconnect with nature and develop a better understanding of the importance of becoming stewards of the environment.
To see if your school can qualify, contact Diana Andrejczak by sending email to: andrejczak@prc.org and visit PRC’s Students As Stream Stewards Program webpage.
