Schuylkill Explorers Program
Each session includes a guided walk along the Pottstown RiverWalk interpretive trail.

Leaf rubbings and other hands on activities help students connect to the environment

Operating Hours/Cost
For groups of up to 25 students. By appointment only. Free

Our Schuylkill Explorers program provides an opportunity for elementary aged (grades K-8) student groups to explore the Schuylkill River Trail, learn about the Schuylkill River's history and environment, and to develop an awareness of watershed protection. Under the direction of Schuylkill River Heritage Area Educational Coordinator Sarah Crothers, students will visit our River of Revolutions Interpretive Center, take a guided walk along the new Pottstown RiverWalk and conduct an experiment that demonstrates how land use and storm water runoff contribute to water pollution. Activities will foster an appreciation for nature and an understanding of how positive changes in personal behavior can have positive changes on the environment.
