Lunch will be provided at the end of the 6.8-mile paddle.

NEW MIDDLE SECTION PADDLING BOOKLET

 

The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership has received a mini-grant from the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR) to develop a Middle Section Susquehanna River Water Trail itinerary booklet in cooperation with the SRTA. The booklet will highlight options for exploring the water trail and promote the SRTA, serving as a valuable outreach and informational resource for our organization.

THE SRTA-SGP SOJOURN RETURNS JUNE 29

The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership and SRTA will again organize a one-day paddling adventure on a portion of the Middle Section. Details are in development. Helpers are needed to assure a safe, fun experience for all who participate. If interested in assisting, please send a message to SRTA.
