Healthy Yards, Healthy Watersheds

A healthy watershed starts at home.

If you live within walking distance of Schenley Park, chances are good that you live in the Panther Hollow Watershed. Historically when it rained in your neighborhood, the storm water that fell on your house, yard, and street made its way to the park, Panther Hollow Lake, and the Monongahela River.  However, because the Panther Hollow stream was piped many years ago, the water now rushes right to the Mon, bypassing Schenley Park.  The park needs the water, but slowly! 

It’s a big area, and keeping it healthy is a big job.  The Parks Conservancy is helping to educate residents on how they can help with a series of workshops. 

Our workshops have completed for the season, but be sure to check our calender for upcoming events!
