On Monday, June 19 she’ll be meeting with the Charleroi Area Historical Society to discuss the role of Rivers of Steel in the community, its mission and what programs it has to offer. From its origins in the late 1980s as a task force charged with preserving the heritage and stories of steel mill communities to its newer endeavor and program offerings through its Rivers of Steel Arts and RiverQuest programs, Rivers of Steel is committed to not only celebrating our past, but also embracing our future by connecting people to their environs.
Founded in 2015, Rivers of Steel Arts supports artistic projects that further the interpretation of local history and re-imagine the future of familiar places. It is host to a variety of workshops, tours and community events inspired by the materials, processes and cultures associated with the Carrie Furnaces and steel heritage.
RiverQuest is an award-winning, educational program that engages students and citizens in river-based environmental science experiences, promoting critical thinking and fostering stewardship of the rivers as a significant and vital natural resource. Since 1995, RiverQuest has provided hands-on STEM education programs to more than 100,000 school students, and another 100,000 members of the general public.
Everyone is invited to the Society’s third-of-the-month meetings, held in Riverside Place, the senior citizen room of the SPHS building in the Chamber Plaza. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the meeting begins at 7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
