The Death and Rebirth of the Schuylkill River Event on January 20th

Schuylkill River Town Program is holding “The Death and Rebirth of the Schuylkill River” on Friday, January 20th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at The Centre Theater in Norristown. The night starts off with tastings from from Norristown’s Five Saints Distillery and Conshohocken’s Conshohocken Brewing Company.

The program will focus on the Schuylkill River’s role as the lifeblood of the Industrial Revolution and the “workshop of the world”, to a fiery open sewer, and finally to its recent rebirth as 2014 River of the Year and home to bald eagle and shad.

The event is free.
