What is the Susquehanna Greenway?
The Susquehanna Greenway is a corridor of farms, forests, parks, trails and river towns that connects people to the natural and cultural treasures of the Susquehanna River. Nearly 500 miles in length, it is Pennsylvania’s largest greenway, and it is waiting for you to explore.

Why is the Susquehanna Watershed Important?
The Susquehanna’s water, timber, coal, and minerals built and powered a growing nation in the 1800s and 1900s. However, clear-cutting timber and coal mining without proper environmental protections in place led to the legacy of contaminated soils and streams for subsequent generations to clean up.

Thanks to the work of early Pennsylvania conservationists like Gifford Pinchot, Joseph Rothrock and Rachel Carson, our forests and streams have been largely restored and we now understand the link between land used, clean water and healthy communities. The Susquehanna Greenway continues this conservation movement and provides opportunities for exploration of its river towns, land and water trails. To learn more, explore or get involved.
