The South Philly Language Exchange is a monthly event that brings together English and Spanish speakers over dinner at local restaurants. This event is open to everyone and is informal and fun.

Interested in learning more about the neighborhood’s green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) and how you can help keep the installations eye-catching and effective at maintaining clean water?

PSCA continues its partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) through a team of GSI Ambassadors, who are trained on how the stormwater management installations function and how to identify issues and report problems –  tasks which can be completed onsite while you walk your dog or take the stroller around the neighborhood!

Learn more about the benefits of green stormwater infrastructure and the team of GSI Ambassadors by joining us for a drink at Devils Den (1148 S. 11th St.) on Wednesday, March 18, at 6:30 pm or by emailing

You can read more about PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative at their website.
