Rally for the Susquehanna River
Are you looking for a way to make a difference? There is a water crisis in Pennsylvania, and we need your voice! Our elected officials have failed to protect the water we drink by failing to protect our waters and streams. As a result, our state ranks third — behind Texas and Florida — for most reported drinking water safety violations.
The health of the Susquehanna River, part of the Captain John Smith National Historic Trail (America’s first water trail) and the source of drinking water for more than 6 million people, is threatened by animal waste and eroding soils. The river attracts locals and visitors from near and far and is an integral part of community life and local economies. We must speak up NOW to protect the Susquehanna River.
On Saturday, June 17 — before the start of crucial state budget negotiations — we’ll wave our paddles and our rally signs from kayaks and canoes that local outfitters will provide, with the state capitol as our backdrop! As we urge our state legislators and Governor Wolf’s administration to prioritize clean water, we’ll have special guests, music, and a little river paddling. Let’s come together on our beloved Susquehanna River and speak up for clean water!
WHAT: Susquehanna River Rally: Paddles & Signs in the Air!
WHEN: Saturday, June 17, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
WHERE: City Island, Harrisburg, PA 17101 – Beach House Area
