We gave out posters!! The River of the Year program is sponsored by the PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources, and the River of the Year designee gets 1,000 posters to hand out for free. The poster, shown above, features a photo taken during our annual Schuylkill River Sojourn. We like it because it depicts the fun side of the river!

We offered a special Scenes of the Schuylkill art award: In our 11th Annual Scenes of the Schuylkill art show, a Staff Choice award was given to a piece that best represented the river's beauty. The award went to photographer Mary Kosar for her photograph "Fog in Woods, Riverfront Park."
Our partners celebrated too! We shared our $10,000 River of the Year grant with Montgomery County and the Schuylkill River Development Corp. in Philadelphia so that they, too could highlight the River of the Year. But many of our other partners held programs that celebrated the Schuylkill as well. Overall, it was a wonderful year that brought lots of well-deserved recognition to the Schuylkill.
