eastern pennsylvania coalition for abandoned mine reclamation | local non-profit photography

EPCAMR is an amazing non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitating the land and economy in Northeast Pennsylvania, near Wilkes-Barre, that was ravaged by the decline of the coal industry. The group is working incredibly hard to clean up the messes left behind, to bring back the area's economic dependence, to re-engage residents, and to earn federal and state support for all of these efforts. I strongly encourage you to spend a few minutes over on their website learning about their cause, and to look for ways you can lend a hand - even the smallest bit helps. Many thanks to Peak Design for connecting me to this project!
