Help Celebrate Lancaster County Water Week June 3-11

Now in its 6th year,
Lancaster Water Week - June 3-11-- celebrates the 1,400 miles of streams and rivers in Lancaster County. 

These cricks and creeks are the source of our drinking water, drive economic and agricultural growth, and allow us to escape into nature to fish, paddle, and swim. 

Many of these beautiful streams are polluted, but there is an incredible effort underway to bring them back to health in our lifetime.

Join us during Water Week for over 20 events as we paddle, stomp, explore, volunteer, watch videos and take action as a community to protect our streams and rivers for the future!
