MyKyah Vessels is our Tacony Creek Park (TCP) Fellow through the Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE). MyKyah has been an educator to TCP goers (during our June Block Parties) by teaching the public about storm water runoff and other watershed related topics with our Creekmobile!
Nature has always been important to MyKyah and she has developed an even deeper connection to the environment by focusing her Alliance for Watershed Education Capstone project on Foraging in Tacony Creek Park: learning about how neighbors forage in the park and sharing that information through both online resources and a series of foraging walks in the park.
AWE celebrated a successful Fellowship season in August 2021, with its Delaware River Watershed Fellows presenting their Capstone work at the end-of-program Summit, live from the Discovery Center. In case you missed it or would like to re-watch our guest speaker videos and Fellows’ presentations again, here is the link to the full 2021 Fellowship Summit Video.
Tremendous thanks to all Fellows, Supervisors, Mentors, guest speakers Nagiarry Porcéna Ménéus and Shawneece Hennighan, AWE Center Staff, the Fellowship team and of course the William Penn Foundation for supporting another successful Summer cohort of 30 individuals, now members of the AWE Alumni community.
