Another important goal of SHA is to educate the public about our water and the importance of protecting the Schuylkill River and its watershed for future generations. In order to raise community awareness about water pollution and to encourage residents to do their part in preventing pollution, SHA carries out outreach projects that include tree plantings, film festivals, and 5K runs.

The following is a preview of what  you will see:

Witness (18 min.)

Notable anthropologist Jane Goodall, National Geographic Editor-at-Large Michael Nichols, and International League of Conservation Photographers president Cristina Mittermeier share candid thoughts on the power of photography and its value as an effective conservation tool.

Meet Your Farmer (28 min.)

Meet Your Farmer is a series of four short profiles of farms in Maine.

The projects highlighted are very low-tech, cheap, and beautiful, making a good argument for kicking back and not raking the leaves.

Bag It (45 min.)

Try going a day without plastic. In this touching and funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world.

We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it.
