Girty's Run Watershed Day was held in Millvale for the Girty’s Run Watershed this year. The event kicked off with a stream cleanup in the morning followed by family friendly events in the afternoon.



ACCD participated in planning for the event as well as exhibiting. Our display included a demonstration on how stormwater runs off of different surfaces. Also on display were macroinvertebrates from Girty’s Run and a plankton sample from a local pond. Kids enjoyed seeing the different types of organisms swimming around in the water. There was also an eco-scavenger hunt around Millvale showing several best management practices that ended at the Grist House Brewery. Fun was had by all!
