Swatara Greenway

The 4-minute video above describes the importance of the Swatara Creek as a Green Ribbon Landscape.  Take a virtual tour of the creek and learn more about the importance of this local water resource.

As part of Manada Conservancy’s preservation mission, we are working to create a greenway, or natural corridor, along the Swatara Creek to help assure healthy local waterways and a positive future for the Chesapeake Bay.

Healthy streamside buffers absorb pollutants, create wildlife habitat, and greatly reduce flooding.  Because of these benefits, we are working in cooperation with landowners, businesses, and municipalities who wish to voluntarily participate in the conservation and restoration of the lands that buffer the Swatara Creek.
