Schuylkill Acts and Impacts youth

Schuylkill Acts & Impacts

An Expedition to Inspire Watershed Action

June 17–24

Schuylkill Acts & Impacts is a weeklong watershed expedition that is offered to a team of 12 high school students from the five counties (Schuylkill, Berks, Montgomery, Chester, and Philadelphia) in the Schuylkill River watershed. Students will spend the week learning about different water quality impacts in the watershed, do hands-on testing, learn from and interact with environmental professionals throughout the watershed, and will camp, kayak, and have tons of fun!

Schuylkill Headwaters Association (SHA), Fairmount Water Works, and Stroud Water Research Center have partnered to make this year’s program a success!

Fore Fresh Water Golf Outing

Monday, May 22 Postponed until Monday, October 16!
Fieldstone Golf Club, Greenville, Delaware

Due to the forecast of afternoon thunderstorms, and upon consultation with Fieldstone Golf Club, we are sorry to say that we have decided to postpone our golf outing until Monday, October 16.

With this gloomy weather forecast, we feel the best course of action is to postpone the outing until a later date so everyone can have an enjoyable experience.  October seems a long way away, but we thought this later date would make it easier for you to adjust your schedule, especially for those of you who are away for the summer. We will keep in touch as October 16 draws closer but the schedule of events will remain the same.

We regret the inconvenience and look forward to a beautiful day of golf with you in October!
