Health of the Perkiomen Creek

The Conservation team at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy has begun to survey and assess the ecological health of the Perkiomen Creek. We started our journey in Hereford, where the headwaters of the Perkiomen are found, and have made our way down to beautiful Green Lane. Streambank erosion and pollution has been observed thus far, but luckily no sign of the invasive European water chesnut. Stay tuned as we continue through Green Lane and head toward the Schuylkill River.
