Have You Registered For Ohio River Watershed Celebration Sept. 27?

It’s that time of year again to register for the Ohio River Watershed Celebration to be held on the Three Rivers in Pittsburgh on September 27.
This year the main cruise will feature presentations by Michael Krancer, Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection, and John Arway, Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission.
Join the fun as hundreds of people interested in protecting and restoring the watersheds around Western Pennsylvania come together to network, learn new skills, share their success stories and enjoy a cruise on the Gateway Clipper Fleet leaving from Station Square in Pittsburgh.
Online registration is available.
Poster Contest/Cash Prizes
As in the past years, the organizers of the Celebration would like to recognize the positive efforts and impacts of small local organizations on their watershed by offering cash prizes of $500.00 and $250.00 for winning displays in each of four categories-- Community Outreach and Education, Most Innovative, Best Example of Partnership and Best Overall Display.  
These awards are for formal or informal associations, alliances, environmental groups or like-minded organization in the Ohio River Watershed.  (They do not include local, state or federal agencies or private businesses.)
The theme this year is “Our Rivers – Get to the Point” and we would like you to try to incorporate this somewhere in your display.  Tell us how you “got to the point” with your project!
If your organization would like to participate in the contest this year register for the event, check off Poster Option when you register online.
Please send an email to Sylvia Danehy at: and confirm that you want to enter the poster contest and then your display will be placed on the list to be judged.
