Pennsylvania Greenways Program

  1. The goal of the Pennsylvania Greenways Program is to establish an interconnected network of greenways “on-the-ground.” This network will connect Pennsylvania’s natural, historic, and scenic landscapes, as well as our cultural and recreational sites. Greenways can be a tool for conserving natural resources, extending opportunities for outdoor recreation, and even providing the means to walk and bike to community destinations. This network will come about by planning for greenways in our municipalities, counties, and state. The PA Greenways Program has identified a network of “Major Greenways” and encourages counties and municipalities to plan for greenways. [http://www.pagreenways.org]
