Schuylkill Acts & Impacts is a week-long watershed expedition along the 120-miles of the Schuylkill River, from its headwaters in the anthracite coal lands of Schuylkill County to its confluence with the Delaware River in Philadelphia. Twelve select students from all five counties (Schuylkill, Berks, Montgomery, Chester, and Philadelphia) in the watershed come together to experience first-hand the impact of human development on water quality through guided tours, fieldwork, water sampling and interactive presentations with environmental professionals throughout the watershed. They camp, kayak, and have lots of fun!

This years 6th annual Schuylkill Acts & Impacts watershed program will be held from June 15-22, 2019.
