Explore Stories from the Streams

800 450 Stroud Water Research Center

As valuable bioindicators of water quality, macroinvertebrates are often the storytellers of our streams. However, their stories aren’t the only ones we find important! The “Stories from the Streams” series from WHYY-TV shows how Stroud Center scientists, educators, and private citizens are working every day to maintain the quality of the water that sustains 15 million people living in the Delaware River Watershed.

During Teacher Appreciation Week and year-round, we are uniquely grateful for the stories authored by classroom teachers, school administrators, and non-formal educators who create daily ripples in the lives of millions of children. In the “Fly, Teachers, Fly” video below, watch Axalta’s All-Pro teachers and a Philadelphia Eagle plunge into freshwater-focused professional development in White Clay Creek at the Stroud Center!
