The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources announced 198 grants totalling $26.5million for recreation and conservation projects across the state.
We are pleased to share that the Susquehanna Greenway corridor will see the impact from this investment through many funded project partners. SGP received $165,000 from the Environmental Stewardship Fund to continue our work revitalizing and connecting river towns, enhancing education, and coordinating water trail management.
Other partners working along the Greenway include the Endless Mountains Heritage Region, the Lancaster County Conservancy, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, the PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers, and the Susquehanna Heritage Corporation. Many Greenway counties also received funding for recreational, trail, or park projects that will help to build the Susquehanna Greenway. This includes some funding for the development of new public river access in Jersey Shore.
SGP has been assisting Jersey Shore with fundraising and project development through our River Town program. Read about this project here.
