A Place and a Partnership

The Susquehanna Riverlands is the ribbon of scenic and historic landscape along both shores of the Susquehanna River as it flows through Lancaster and York Counties in Central Pennsylvania.

The Susquehanna Riverlands Conservation Landscape is a collaboration of communities, organizations and agencies seeking to enhance this rich landscape through increased land protection, natural and cultural resource stewardship, increased public connection to these resources, and promoting sustainable economic development through heritage and outdoor tourism.

Pennsylvania’s Conservation Landscapes are regional initiatives where partners are working together to drive strategic investment and actions around sustainability, conservation, community revitalization, and recreational projects. These large landscape areas possess strong natural assets, local readiness and buy-in, and state-level investment support.
