A brand new Planet Philadelphia is coming up this Friday January 15th at 4:00 pm on wonderful Gtown radio – the sound of Germantown, http://www.gtownradio.com/.
Planet Philadelphia host, Kay Wood speaks with three exciting guests, starting off with two scientists at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University; Dr. Stefanie Kroll, a director of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative, talks about the ambitious multi-group initiative that was kickstarted with a $35 million commitment by the William Penn Foundation. She is followed up by Lin B. Perez, a GeoSpatial Scientist with the BioGeoInformatics Group at the Academy.
