The Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) was awarded a $125,000 grant from the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to support the 2011 Sojourns. Funding will be used to organize and administer this nationally unique experiential paddling program that helps teach thousands of people about recreation and conservation of Pennsylvania’s rivers. POWR makes mini-grants to local partnerships to host 2 to 6-day paddling trips on the state’s rivers.
