TTF and the Hiway Theater recently welcomed over 100 clean water heroes to our screening of A Watershed Moment, a film about the challenges faced by the Delaware River and how the William Penn Foundation‘s Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI) supports efforts to restore and protect this critical resource. Our audience saw a film about the Philadelphia Water Department’s green stormwater infrastructure program, as well as several of our vimeos. These vimeos, produced by GreenTreks Network, allowed attendees to learn about our upstream creek restoration, as well as our bird and nature programs in Tacony Creek Park.



We are so proud to be part of the DRWI! Our goals for this screening were to: inform people about our participation as well as the involvement of partners across the region and the Delaware River basin; inspire attendees to support all of our efforts; and demonstrate this valuable tool for education and inspiration.

Attendees included H2O for Life Club members from Abington Senior High School, as well as environmental leaders from across our region including key partners like Abington Friends School, The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed, Penn Future, and other watershed organizations. We were honored that Nathan Boon (and family) from the William Penn Foundation welcomed us and shared DRWI background and goals.


Thank you, partners and attendees! Please screen this inspiring film (produced by the Open Space Institute) at your local theater, school, business, or home. We’d be happy to host a screening with you!
