Programs Supported by Your Donations
Shenango River Watchers provides a wide range of programs. From our litter cleanups and tire recycling that have collected over 2 million pounds of trash and 100,000 tires from the watershed, to environmental education that has reached thousands of children within the watershed through environmental education days and community events. Our research team collects water samples and performs ecological surveys to monitor water quality in the Shenango River. In addition to these programs, SRW maintains the Water Trail so paddlers can enjoy the river as well as maintaining the Shenango Hiking Trail so hikers, bikers, and equestrians can enjoy it from land as well. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and their hard work, we are now able to use the Shenango Hiking Trail for educational programs such as our Spring Wildflower Hike, nature hikes, and macroinvertebrate sampling with scout and school groups.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
Funding from our donors and the community help provide the necessary supplies to fully conduct our children’s educational programs, maintenance of the Upper Shenango River Water Trail and its canoe launches, maintenance of the Shenango Hiking Trail, litter cleanups, and complete water testing. These are important as we continue to help provide a safe and healthy environment to the residents of our community and beyond. With your help, we can continue to remove litter and tires from the watershed, educate the public, and improve river access and recreation along the Shenango River.
