Greening the Lower Susquehanna

This project is focusing on green infrastructure approaches to restoration and stormwater management in the Lower Susquehanna region.

About

Greening the Lower Susquehanna is a project funded by a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant and is being spear-headed by Penn State’s Agriculture and Environment Center. This project is focusing on green infrastructure approaches to restoration and stormwater management in the Lower Susquehanna region. The pieces of this grant include a native tree nursery that can provide free trees to interested landowners, establishing a dedicated group of volunteers to assist with projects, and working with communities to adopt green infrastructure.

To get involved with this project, you can join the Volunteer Conversations Corps! The Greening the Lower Susquehanna Volunteer Conservation Corps has over 350 active participants who respond to requests for help throughout the lower Susquehanna region. Volunteers will have the opportunity to rescue seedlings for the tree nursery, clean up trash from our precious waterways and help maintain rain gardens. To join the mailing list for future events, email VolunterGreen@psu.edu.
