Celebrate Lancaster Water Week at Greenfield! 


About this event:

A naturalist from the Lancaster Conservancy will guide us for a stream exploration where we'll examine benthic macroinvertebrates to determine stream health and evaluate the sustainability of the stream corridor.

Participants will determine what is right with Stauffer Run, and identify changes that could be made to improve the quality of this stream. We will also discuss how the recommendations made to improve this stream can be made on other streams.


Event Schedule: 

  • 6:00 PM - Registration and overview of stream exploration
  • 6:10 - 7:10 PM - Stream exploration
  • 7:15 - 8:00 PM - Q&A and networking 


Comfortable attire recommended. Children are encouraged and welcome to attend but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.


About Lancaster Water Week:

Now in its 8th year, Lancaster Water Week celebrates the 1,400 miles of streams and rivers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. These waterways are the source of our drinking water, drive economic and agricultural growth, and allow us to escape into nature to fish, paddle, and swim. Many of these beautiful streams are polluted, but there is an incredible effort underway to bring them back to health in our lifetime.


This event is FREE and open to the public. RSVP required.
