Alana Jajko - Director of Communications & Outreach
Alana joined the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership in 2018 and was promoted to Director of Communications & Outreach in 2019. Her work is focused on promoting trails and communities within our vibrant and connected Susquehanna Greenway, so that communities in our region can enjoy opportunities to engage with the outdoors. A graduate of Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, Alana received a B.A. in Studio Art and Creative Writing with a Classics minor, as well as an M.A. in English with a focus in Environmental Studies. Before joining SGP, one of Alana’s earlier endeavors was as project manager for a PBS documentary series entitled “Stories of the Susquehanna Valley.” The narratives of this series allowed her to make connections from one river town to another, sparking a desire to become more involved in communities along the shared waterway. SGP has become an avenue for her to do just that. In her spare time, Alana enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, landscape painting, reading, and travel writing. During her travels both in the U.S. and abroad she’s always on the lookout for ways to get outside and bask in the natural and cultural landscapes of wherever she is. Her time at SGP has shown her that these things also exist right in our own backyard in the beautiful Susquehanna Valley. She looks forward to seeing how the Greenway will continue to feed these interests, and how her own experiences will serve the continued growth and development of SGP. Alana can be reached at 570-360-5199 or ajajko@susquehannagreenway.org
