Fun For All Ages At Pittsburgh Voyager

Aboard the boat guest  strengthen skills in science and social studies through discussions about the rivers, question-and-answer games, and mapping exercises. Once polluted by industrial waste and raw sewage, Pittsburgh's three rivers are now cleaner. More than 50 species of fish thrive in the inland waters. And remember—don't litter on the land, because that litter could eventually be washed down the South Side slopes and flats into the river, where it would pollute the water.
