Schuylkill Sojourn

500 400 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Water Research Center educators educated participants in the 11th annual Schuylkill Sojourn.

Hundreds of people embark on a seven-day, 112-mile canoe trip down the Schuylkill River — from Schuylkill Haven to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — every June. The 11th annual Schuylkill Sojourn, which took place in June of 2009, organized by the Schuylkill River Greenway Association, was intended to deepen the appreciation for the Schuylkill River, a river steeped in history, by those who rely on it for everything from recreation to their drinking water.

During the 2009 Sojourn, Stroud Water Research Center educators organized the educational programs, which included presentations by our scientists. We continued to monitor the Schuylkill as we canoed downstream.
