Who is the SCRA?
The SCRA is citizens from all walks of life, most of whom live in the Shamokin Creek Watershed. We are working to restore the central Pennsylvania Shamokin Creek watershed which has been polluted by acid mine drainage. We would like to include you! We are a non-profit (501c3) organization, and we seek to involve citizens, businesses, local governments, and students.
