Why Celebrate our Mayflies?

Up and down the Susquehanna River and on our many beloved creeks, so many of us have labored hard and while there is more work to do to improve the Susquehanna, we also must celebrate the significant results of our clean water efforts. Last year’s remarkable four-week mayfly hatch was an important event demonstrating the improving health of the Susquehanna River and its creeks.

Many people have complained and see the mayflies as a bad thing, but the Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association has decided to use this as an educational moment and time to celebrate the health of the Susquehanna River and our communities. The return of the mayflies represents our renewed commitment to having fishable, swimmable and drinkable water for all residents and visitors to our incredible river and surrounding lands.
