Management Plan

The Management Plan River was prepared by the Philadelphia-based consulting firm of Wallace, Roberts and Todd between 2000 and 2002. The United States Secretary of the Interior and the Pennsylvania Secretary of Conservation and Natural Resources accepted the plan as the guiding document for the Heritage Area in June 2003. Living with the River was prepared with support from the National Park Service, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and individual donors and contributors.
