About the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership (SGP)
Greenways are corridors of land recognized for their ability to connect people and places together. The Susquehanna Greenway will link natural, cultural, historic, and recreational resources along the 500-mile corridor of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania.
SGP--as the name suggests--partners with organizations that work within conservation, recreation and community planning, along with local governments to establish and monitor regional greenway efforts, engage the community, and promote local ownership of the greenway plan and its implementation.
Finally, with events like the River Valley Ride, SGP helps residents become familiar with the recreational resources available in thier own backyards, encouraging people to get out and enjoy the bike trails, waterways, hiking trails, and points of historical interest in their communities.
