Reminder: Nominations Open Until Oct. 24 For 2015 River Of The Year

The PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers Thursday reminded Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations nominations for the 2015 Pennsylvania River of the Year are due October 24.
"Every year we look forward to seeing which rivers are nominated by Pennsylvanians. We hear why one particular river is special, how the river plays a role in the community, how residents and visitors enjoy all the recreational opportunities the river has to offer, how groups have rallied to clean up sections of the river." said Ellen Ferretti, Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. "Each and every river has a story to tell and we all connect to "our" river in different ways. For 2015, it will be exciting to see which river becomes River of the Year!
"We are asking for nominations and for the fifth year in a row will allow citizens to vote and choose their River of the Year."
When the nomination period is closed, selected nominations will be voted on by the general public beginning in early November.
All Pennsylvania Rivers are eligible for nomination, with the exception of winning rivers since 2010.
