The Lehigh Is In The Running for
2021 Pennsylvania River of the Year
Our amazing Lehigh, which we know and love and celebrate as the lifeblood of our region, is one of FIVE finalists for this special recognition!
Presented annually since 1983, the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR), an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, administers the River of the Year program with funding from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).

The winning river is awarded $10,000 in grants which will go towards the promotion of river-related programming that supports the recreational, economic, health and environmental benefits of the waterway to our community!

What a great start for a healthy New Year!
