It is time for vote for the Pennsylvania River of the Year, and our own Perkiomen Creek has been nominated. If selected by popular vote, the Creek will receive funding and attention that will improve water quality and engage local residents.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) recognize one river as the River of the Year. This recognition is done to raise awareness of the important recreational, ecological, and historical resources associated with the state’s rivers and streams.
The River of the Year is celebrated throughout the year with paddling trips, a speaker series, cleanup days, photography contests, and more. Let’s bring notoriety and some fun outings to the Perkiomen!
The voting period will last from November 14th to December 19th, 2016. Find our more about this year’s nominees and vote!
