Another year of successful River Sojourns is in the bag. As news from all of the sponsoring organizations filters into POWR headquarters, the scale of these river trips comes into focus.
In total, there were 14 sojourns held this year on rivers across the state. Nearly 2000 people joined these trips ranging from one to eight days long. They experienced the beauty of Pennsylvania on the water as they paddled along 500 miles of rivers and streams. Thousands of volunteer hours were contributed to put all of this together.
Most of the people who worked behind the scenes to make these trips happen have spoken positively about the experience for both their their organizations and the people who participated. Many of the organizations are already planning for next year’s trips!
POWR sends a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in the 2011 River Sojourn season!
