Description

What do prisoners, paddlers, parochial school students, and an energetic puppy all have in common? They are all engaged in citizen scientist work with Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper. In this short presentation, explore outside the traditional citizen scientist box and discover ways to engage community members in your work while learning more about Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper's newly launched programs with Pennsylvania State Department of Correction's SCI Quehanna Bootcamp, American Canoe Association-Pennsylvania, Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School, and "Little Keeper" Susquehanna, who is being trained to sniff out sewage leaks in the watershed and will serve as a spokes-dog for a new poop-to-power initiative. Curious? Join us.
