The PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers is now accepting applications for 2014 PA River Sojourn Grants. Applications are due February 28.
Grants are available on a competitive basis for single and multi-day paddling events on Pennsylvania’s rivers. Events must incorporate significant educational programming and be open to all participants. Private trips are not eligible.
Up to $900 per on-water day for multi-day sojourns and $500 for single-day sojourns are available.
As a nationally unique program, the Pennsylvania Sojourns reach over 4,000 people, paddle over 500 river miles, offer more than 100 educational programs and distribute more than $60,000 in grants across the state.
POWR, an affiliate of the PA Environmental Council, administers the PA Sojourn Program. POWR has been in place for over a decade and has sponsored trips on many of the Commonwealth’s rivers. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is the prime sponsor of the program.For more information, visit the PA River Sojourn Grants webpage.
