Forty film enthusiasts and environmentalists joined us last week at the Hiway Theater in Jenkintown for an environmental film screening. This special event was a part of RiverDays, a celebration of fun, environmental activities hosted by the Alliance for Watershed Education.
As people munched on popcorn and other theater snacks, we showcased a collection of local videos about the clean water efforts happening in the Delaware River Watershed, including A WATERSHED MOMENT by Thomas Lennon, and many films by GreenTreks Network including “5 Down, 20 to Go: Green City Clean Waters,” and some of our own videos about Backyard Buffers, Tacony Creek Park, and fishing in our watershed.
Additionally, for the first time on the big screen, we shared our new video StreamKeepers: Keeping an Eye on our Creeks about local heroes who study and protect waterways here in the TTF Watershed.
After the event, there were opportunities to chat with TTF staff about volunteer opportunities, and pick up milkweed and black eyed susan seeds for the garden.
