Your Donations Help Us
- Build & Maintain the Schuylkill River Trail: The Schuylkill River Greenways NHA built, operates and maintains over 30 trail miles in Berks and Schuylkill Counties, without the benefit of federal, state or local tax dollars. We are always working to add more trail miles.
- Improve the Trail: We work with our partners to make the entire trail, from Philadelphia to Frackville, more accessible by creating a full-color trail map, an interactive version of the map online, a uniform sign system and improving trailheads.
- Manage the Schuylkill River Water Trail: Water Trail maps, signs and public landings make the river more accessible and safer for recreational boating.
- Connect Communities to the River: Our Pedal & Paddle excursions, movie nights by the river, Greenways Get-Togethers, and Heritage & Hops tours help communities engage and embrace the Schuylkill River.
- Clean the River: SRG oversees the Schuylkill River Restoration Fund, which has collected over $3 million and funded over 100 projects that improve water quality throughout the watershed.
