About the Greenways Get Together Series

Explore an attraction within the Schuylkill River Greenways (SRG) National Heritage Area as part of our Greenways-Get-Together Series. These FREE events provide an opportunity for community members to join SRG staff for a site visit of interest within the region such as historic grounds, natural preserves, education centers, treatment plants and more.

Participants gather for a unique experience at the site for activities that might not ordinarily be available to them. Past experiences have included ranger-led discussions, behind-the-scenes tours and engaging demonstrations.

Schuylkill River Greenways was designated a Pennsylvania Heritage Area in 1995 and recognized as a National Heritage Area in 2000. The Schuylkill River Heritage Area celebrates the Schuylkill River watershed as one of America’s most significant cultural, historical and industrial regions. The area encompasses Schuylkill, Berks, Chester, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties.

Heritage Areas work to revitalize and restore the region through several activities including heritage tourism. There’s always something fascinating to discover in the nationally-significant landscape such as historic places, beautiful parks and river towns.
