RiverAlive! is a forthcoming 4,000 square foot exhibition at the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia, focused on the wonders and challenges of the Delaware River watershed, our place within that system, and the increasingly sophisticated science we use to understand the watershed’s complexity.
RiverAlive! reveals the Delaware River watershed as an amazing system that covers 13,500 square acres in the heart of the northeastern United States. More than 15 million people—and thousands of plant, animal, and insect species (including you!)—are part of this complex world. RiverAlive! will illuminate the continuous life of the Delaware River through a watershed science and innovation lens, providing platforms for project partners (23 members of the Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River, as well as Stroud Water Research Center, Partnership for Delaware Estuary, Philadelphia Water, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel, the Wagner Free Institute of Science of Philadelphia, and others) to directly engage the public with their important work at different stations.
