Renew Your Membership

Easily renew your membership right here on our website!

Your membership has allowed us to accomplish so many wonderful environmental and community enriching projects that we can’t even list them all!  Over the past 20 years, you have helped us: remove over 1.5 million pounds of trash from the watershed, dispose of more than 55,000 tires, clean up a two-story dump along the Rail-to-Trail project in Greenville and create the Upper Shenango River Water Trail that opened our beautiful river to thousands of paddlers from our watershed and beyond. 

Your support also contributed to the construction of a wheelchair accessible fishing pier in Sharon, and helped us to implement a hands on environmental education program at Buhl Park for local schools, and create recreational opportunities such as the Sheango Trail and the Upper Shenango River Water Trail.

As you can see, our volunteers, community and donors help us to accomplish so much, but it’s YOU, our members whose support through membership fees sustains our organization.  SRW helped pave the way for many other non-profits that have blossomed over the past decade to the revitalize Downtown Sharon, increase tourism and promote our community. We are proud of our work in the region and hope you will renew your membership so we can accomplish even more.  Current projects include:

¨ Restoration and maintenance of the Shenango Hiking Trail that is parallel to the former Erie Canal Extension Tow Path and the Shenango River. 

¨ Continuation of our water quality research and fish studies within the Shenango River watershed.

We have a busy year ahead of us and hope you will show your excitement by renewing or becoming a member of Shenango River Watchers TODAY!
