On Wednesday March 7 at the Philadelphia Flower Show, with support from the William Penn Foundation and assistance from habitheque, the Philadelphia Horticultural Society will bring together multidisciplinary visionaries to explore clean water solutions in streams, urban centers, and even outer space!

Featured speakers include environmental leaders — from artists to astronauts to scientists — including John Jackson, Ph.D., Stroud Center entomologist and senior research scientist. Representatives from two companies from the Stroud Center’s design/build team for the Moorhead Environmental Complex will also speak: Michele Adams, founder of Meliora Environmental Design, and Chris Streb, ecological engineer for Biohabitats.

Forty-six years years after the passage of the Clean Water Act, the speakers will discuss why we still have clean water crises in the United States, how to forge meaningful connections to the natural world among young urbanites, how floating wetlands in urban rivers can reduce water pollution, and so much more.
