Pennsylvania’s River of the Year is an honor bestowed upon a commonwealth river to elevate public awareness about that resource and recognize important conservation needs and achievements. The PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) administer the River of the Year program, but local organizations submit nominations and, if selected, implement a year round slate of activities and events to celebrate the river, including a special extended paddling trip known as a Sojourn.

  1. I was made aware of your site via State Rep. M Quinn, I am glad to observe something being done to mention & raise awareness of the natural resources pennsylvania posseses. I hope that any further honorable mention of the six finalists would not stop after the votes are in ; that the messages would continue the awareness to all bodies of water big & small.
