River Ambassadors

The River Ambassadors program at Independence Seaport Museum strives to educate all individuals about our impact on our waterways through hands-on and on-water experiences, community science, outreach and fun.  

Students participate in the River Ambassadors program at the Museum to learn as much as possible about Philadelphia's surrounding rivers and watershed and why and how to protect them. Ambassadors demonstrate Citizen Science Lab programs for the public, participate in on-water activities, conduct daily water testing in our boat basin, care for our floating wetlands, and spend time in Spruce Street Harbor Park demonstrating how anyone can take small steps to care for our environment. 

River Ambassadors are integral to better connecting Philadelphia's communities with our waterways.
