In this game, you are hired to travel down the Lehigh River to explore nine locations with environmental and historical significance.  After your trip, you will recommend your top three locations for promoting tourism in the watershed.  If you are 13 years old or older and located in the United States, we invite you to play the game and help us learn how the game promotes understandings of the Lehigh River watershed, including historic and contemporary environmental issues.
