Pennsylvanians Choose Monongahela As 2013 River Of The Year

The Monongahela River is the western boundary of the Laurel Highlands Conservation Landscape Initiative. Led by DCNR, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and others, the initiative seeks to protect the unique character of the Laurel Highlands and recognize its communities as world-class heritage/recreation destinations as well as desirable places to work and live.

Six communities along the Monongahela River are participating in the Pennsylvania Environment Council's River Town Program. This program assists distressed communities bordering a navigable river to develop an alternative economic engine, outdoor recreation, to aid in community revitalization.

Several events throughout the year will celebrate the Monongahela River's designation, including a sojourn offering canoeists, kayakers and other paddlers a chance to experience life on the river and encourage greater understanding of its challenges and potential.

The Monongahela River also will be celebrated with an annual Rivers Month poster issued in June.

Pennsylvania's River of the Year honors have been presented annually since 1983.
