Susquehanna River Rally

It's time to raise your paddle for clean water.

This June, Pennsylvania lawmakers are gearing up to develop and pass a 2018 state budget. It’s looking like the health of our rivers and streams may be on the negotiating table once again. The Susquehanna River provides the water that more than 5 million people drink, serves as a large portion of the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, and offers local communities abundant recreation opportunities.

This river is too important to allow our legislature to gut the very programs that protect it.

Will you join us in raising your voice, paddle and rally sign as we call for clean water leadership from the Pennsylvania Legislature?
