“What started as a single-town cleanup in 2018 has since grown to a month-long initiative that ties together communities all along the Susquehanna River,” explains SGP Executive Director Leslie Warriner. “In its 6th year, we are just thrilled to see the enthusiasm of these amazing partners, community groups, non-profits, and volunteers so committed to making the Susquehanna Greenway a better place to live, work, and explore.”
