Education and Outreach

We conduct educational and outreach program to create greater awareness and understanding about greenways, trails, parks, and conserved lands along the Susquehanna. We work to engage and train citizen stewards, ambassadors and volunteers in creating and maintaining parks, trails, rain gardens and riparian areas.SGP promotes exploration of trails, parks and river towns using a variety of media and programs developed in collaboration with local partners to foster recreational and cultural tourism as a driver for sustainable economic development. We work with partners and private landowners to conserve land along the Susquehanna River to help protect our water quality.

Population(s) Served

Children and youth

The Susquehanna Greenway can be a powerful driver for sustainable economic development and environmental quality for the 70 river towns and 180 other municipalities towns along the Susquehanna River. Our River Towns Revitalization Program helps community leaders and the public to envision, plan, fund and construct park, trails, and river accesses which make river towns more attractive places to live, work, play and visit.

We help to organize River Town Teams and provided needed training to build the capacity of communities to make park, trails, and green infrastructure improvements.

Population(s) Served

SGP is working with partners to create a 500-mile corridor of interconnected walking and trails, water trails and river accesses. This depends heavily on SGP getting inter-governmental cooperation, strengthening partnerships with land conservation organizations, and building the capacity of local project partners. SGP convenes transportation planners including Metropolitan Planning Organizations, Rural Planning Organizations, PennDOT, DCNR and bike/ped advocates to develop strategies for incorporating more bike and pedestrian projects into transportation plans which helps to secure funding for these projects.
SGP is the Water Trail Manager for the 228-mile West Branch Water Trail and 36 miles of the North Branch Water Trail from Berwick to Sunbury. In addition, the SGP Water Trails Committee facilitates collaboration among all the Susquehanna Water Trail Managers and works to develop system-wide programs to promote and enhance the water trails.
