The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership Needs Your Help for Earth Day

Apr 21, 2015 09:41AM ● By Erica Shames

We'd like to wish you a very Happy Earth Day this Wednesday and invite you to celebrate stewardship by getting involved along the Susquehanna River and Greenway!

Not a paddler, boater, or river-rat? No Problem!

Many cleanup events could use folks stationed on land or water. Good with a camera? Consider volunteering as an event photographer. Make some killer cookies? Offer to bring a batch for hungry volunteers.

As you can tell, there is a role for each of us to play and I hope you'll find an event near you, get involved, and give back!
