    to climate change We ve been involved in CUSP from early on and we ve piloted a number of informal learning activities as part of Philly s neighborhood strategy at the Kensington High School for Creative and Performing Arts as part of an after school program We re fine tuning the lessons and will make them available here when they re done along with other learning resources that have been developed by CUSP partners In the meantime Check out this presentation it does a pretty great job of getting at the basics of climate change and what it means to us here in Philly It was developed and delivered by Columbia University Climate Scientist Dan Bader at a CUSP partner training session in Spring 2014 To learn more about CUSP and get involved visit the site Keeping Water On Site At first glance the area surrounding the Waterview Recreation Center in Philadelphia s Germantown section seems ordinary enough but in reality it s comprised of a number of green infrastructure techniques that keep water out of the storm drains During heavy rainfalls when the city s combined sewer system can be easily overwhelmed porous sidewalks tree trenches and a flowthrough planter manage the water as it falls That helps protect local rivers and streams This is all part of Philadelphia s plan to transform the city to manage stormwater runoff in a more natural way This greening effort also helps the City adapt to the realities of climate change by better handling the more frequent and more severe storms Check out the video and look for Climate Connections under the Teacher Materials drop down for lessons that connect it to the Climate Change theme Porous Pavement Before roads and parking lots the majority of rainwater hit the landscape and soaked into the ground was taken up by trees and plants and was slowly returned to the hydrologic cycle through infiltration evapotransipiration or becoming part of the surface water flow Paved surfaces changed all of that and flushed pollution laden runoff directly into rivers and streams Pervious pavement sometimes also called porous asphalt or porous pavement consists of a permeable surface course underlain by a uniformly graded stone bed It allows stormwater to drain through the surface be temporarily held in the voids of the stone bed and then slowly drain into the underlying uncompacted soil mantle mimicking the natural system that once occurred on the site Check out the video and look for Climate Connections under the Teacher Materials drop down for lessons that connect it to the Climate Change theme Local Resources Here are some of the more useful resources our partners have sent our way to help make the climate connection The Fairmount Waterworks has put together an excellent compilation of successful interdisciplnary hands on lessons and activities that help teachers make the connection between water and the complexities and responsibiltiies associated with accessing it using it cleaning it up and returning it to our waterways The Partnership
