Local students awarded for creative environmental protection

    Students at Albright College in Reading have been using global positioning software to create digital land use maps of the Schuylkill River Watershed. Miles away, 6th graders at Springside School in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia have planted native plants in their driveway to help protect the Wissahickon. These are some of the environmental projects that received awards from the Schuylkill Action Network. WHYY’s Peter Crimmins Reports.
