River Ambassadors

The Ambassador program at Independence Seaport Museum provides hands-on learning experiences for high school students. 

Youth who participate will learn about Philadelphia's surrounding rivers, including why and how to protect them.  This year the Seaport Museum will offer two tracks, the River Ambassadors and the SAILOR Ambassadors.  The River Ambassador track will learn to lead Citizen Science programs for the public and conduct daily water quality testing.  The SAILOR Ambassador track will learn environmental science alongside developing carpentry skills to build wooden rain gardens.
