Adam Levine, historical consultant for the Philadelphia Water Department, will talk about streams that once flowed through Fairmount Park, along with water infrastructure – dams, pumping stations, reservoirs—that no longer exists. Adam has been researching the city’s water and drainage history for more than 20 years, and is creator and webmaster of Phillyh2o.org. This brand-new lecture is not to be missed!
This event is part of OcTOURber in Fairmount Park; 5 themes over 5 weeks of self guided tours through East and West Fairmount Park created by Fairmount Park Conservancy.
Each week will feature a thematic self guided tour that will highlight lesser-known gems in the park in addition to virtual and in-person offerings. Themes include Historic Houses, Public Art, Nature, Water and Past & Present.
Complete all missions on the GooseChase app over the next few weeks at your leisure and you’ll win a $50-level membership to Fairmount Park Conservancy. Learn more here: https://bit.ly/2Siik93
