It's up to YOU!
Vote for the Delaware as Pa.'s 2019 River of the Year

The Delaware River is one of four finalists in the running to be Pennsylvania's 2019 River of the Year, and it is now the public's turn to vote!

The River of the Year program is organized by the Pa. Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA DCNR) and is administered by the Pa. Organization for Watersheds and Rivers. This recognition is done to raise awareness of the commonwealth’s rivers and streams, celebrating their unique natural resources, recreational opportunities, connections to communities, and support of local economies.

The winning river will host a sojourn, as well as a series of celebratory events throughout the year; a $10,000 Leadership Grant from PA DCNR is awarded to help fund these activities.  

Voting ends January 4; vote at http://pariveroftheyear.org/2019-river-of-the-year-2/vote-for-a-2019-river-of-the-year/

You do not have to be a Pennsylvania resident to vote in this contest.
