Watersheds

Description

Is our watershed healthy? How can we tell? Students will conduct a stream investigation, sample water, and hike a watershed trail to learn how water connects us all. Note: This program takes place at our neighboring site, Woodmont, located less than 5 minutes from Riverbend's main campus.

Offered At

Riverbend Environmental Education Center

Riverbend Environmental Education Center sits on a 30-acre preserve in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. We teach environmental principles to children in Southeastern Pennsylvania through a direct connection with nature, inspiring respect for our natural world, and action as aware, responsible and caring citizens. All of our programs focus on engaging children in the practices of science, including asking questions, making observations, and collecting data.

Some of our programs take place at neighboring preserves located within a short drive of Riverbend's main campus.

Our programs typically begin at 10AM, but we are happy to be flexible to meet our schools' needs. If you would like your program to begin earlier or later, please let us know!

Please note- Riverbend has a minimum program fee of $125 per group.
