Our Schuylkill River Needs Your Vote for River of the Year

The always-gracious Schuylkill shared its name with
one of our favorite bike/ped trails.
The Schuylkill River is a finalist in the 2013 PA River of the Year Contest. It is currently in 3rd place behind the Lackawanna and Monongahela Rivers.

The award is an honor bestowed upon a Commonwealth river to elevate public awareness about that resource and recognize important conservation needs and achievements.

(The winning river also receives a $50,000 scholarship to pursue its dreams at a Public River University. The Schuylkill wants to study ducks and become an ornithologist.)

The Schuylkill River is home to our longest and most beloved trail on The Circuit. Take a moment to vote for the Schuylkill and encourage your friends to vote!
