Putting Data to Action: Community Science, Partnership, and Advocacy for a Healthy Schuylkill River

Join River Network as we learned how Bartram’s Garden staff, high school interns, and volunteers have worked together to use their water quality data, primarily collected for public boating safety, to advocate for action at the state level.

In this webinar, recorded on June 22, 2021, you’ll hear from Chloe Wang, River Programs Coordinator, and Denkyem River Guardians Ammarava Mika-El and Yasir Hall as they discuss how water recreation, youth development, science and advocacy can intersect in programming that breaks silos, models principles of meaningful community science, and supports young people’s agency as active, civic participants.
