Swatara Water Trail Expansion Project
Swatara Creek Water Trail
The Swatara Creek Water Trail Expansion will add 18 miles to the existing 42-mile Water Trail to create a total 60-mile trail. The Swatara Creek Watershed Association (SCWA) will enhance the existing trail and provide wayfinding opportunities for the extended portion of the route. SCWA will update the present map to include the extension and install interpretive kiosks along the entire length of the 60-mile trail. The SCWA will develop an interpretive history and conservation Guide (booklet, CD and website) regarding the Swatara Creek Watershed, intended to promote local planning, education and conservation along the trail. The Envisioning an Environmental Legacy for the Swatara (EELS) Guide will provide first-hand accounts of the environmental impacts produced by local land-use practices, in addition to offering success stories and “lessons learned," therefore creating a stronger connection between local communities and the Chesapeake Bay.
