EPCAMR Receives National Recognition As American Rivers Cleanup Champion

The Eastern PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation in Northeast PA was recently honored by American Rivers as a National Rivers Cleanup Champion for its efforts to educate communities and the public on the importance of environmental stewardship.  From the award description--
“While the Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation (EPCAMR) has been around for over 20 years, they only just completed their 4th year of cleanups.
“Nevertheless, they’ve already made quite an impact, engaging 93 volunteers and removing 16,470 pounds of trash from the abandoned mine site upstream from Mahanoy Creek this year.
“In addition to this impressive haul, EPCAMR Executive Director Robert Hughes pulled from various community resources and drew in a variety of sponsors to cover event costs and materials, truly making this a community-wide event and educating participants on the importance of restoring formerly degraded spaces.”
