Science Saturdays at Fairmount

  • Fairmount Water Works (map)

Drop into the Fairmount Water Works and explore different aspects of our environment during fun and interactive sessions in the water lab. You can see many living organisms that call the Schuylkill River home – e.g., ducks, fish, turtles, and aquatic plants - but there is a whole watery world you cannot see with the naked eye. Come and collect a water sample full of microscopic organisms and view them under the microscope. Learn to identify them and find out why they are so important to river ecology.
