Protecting the County’s Natural Resources

The Bucks County Conservation District works to educate and help people and the community take care of the natural resources in Bucks County including soil, water, wildlife, trees and other plants. Using natural resources wisely helps to ensure their availability well into the future.

This half-hour documentary explores and exposes threats to Pennsylvania’s watersheds, and highlights the efforts of committed scientists, water-quality advocates, and everyday citizens as they work to protect and restore the state’s streams and rivers . . . not only to benefit Pennsylvanians, but also for the health and safety of all of the life that exists in its downstream communities. Downstream was produced by Point Park University/Environmental Journalism, in association with WQED Multimedia.
