A Journey of Discovery
Pennsylvania American Water is proud to be the presenting sponsor of the first-ever giant screen film on the Chesapeake Bay watershed to encourage watershed protection and environmental stewardship
The film, hosted by biologist, wildlife conservationist and TV personality Jeff Corwin, takes its audience on an epic journey into the region’s vast and diverse watershed, exploring the connections between the millions of people, plants and animals that call it home. The goal of “Expedition Chesapeake” is to create awareness of the threats facing watersheds and estuaries around the globe and to educate audiences about the roles they can play to protect and preserve vital water resources.
This partnership fits perfectly with Pennsylvania American Water’s commitment to being a leader in environmental sustainability by leading and encouraging the protection of our environment and the sources of our drinking water.
“We are deeply protective about keeping our watersheds healthy and clean because millions of people depend on us every day for safe, clean drinking water and sanitation,” said Pennsylvania American Water president Jeffrey McIntyre. “Clean water is at the very core of who we are and what we do, and we see this film as a powerful educational tool for the next generation of environmental stewards.
