The Clarion River will be featured in a U.S. Postal Service stamp next month.

The Postal Service will issue its Wild and Scenic Rivers stamps May 21 with the Clarion River as one of a dozen Forever stamps paying tribute to “the exceptional streams that run freely through America’s natural landscapes.”

The Clarion River, a tributary of the Allegheny, was in the news last year when it was voted Pennsylvania’s 2019 River of the Year.

The Clarion runs for 110 miles from central Elk County to where it joins the Allegheny River, a few miles south of Emlenton. It has been designated part of the National Wild and Scenic River program.

The Wild and Scenic Rivers stamps to be released next month are featured in a pane of a dozen designs with photographs representing the more than 200 rivers or river segments designated within the Wild and Scenic Rivers System, according to the Postal Service.

In December, the Postal Service announced that the river would be featured as part of the 2019 Forever Stamp Wild and Scenic Rivers collection, according to the Explore Clarion website.

Customers can purchase stamps and other philatelic products through the Postal Store at, by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), by mail through USA Philatelic catalog or at post offices nationwide.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
