The mission of Schuylkill River Greenways (SRG) is to connect residents, visitors and communities to the
Schuylkill River and the Schuylkill River Trail by serving as a catalyst for civic engagement and economic
development to foster stewardship of the watershed and its heritage.
The mission is realized by leveraging the Schuylkill River and the award-winning Schuylkill River Trail –
both the land and the water trails – as platforms for revitalization of surrounding communities, for
stewardship of natural resources, for improved public health through recreation, and for greater
appreciation of the region’s cultural heritage. The Schuylkill River Trail is SRG’s signature project. Today,
there are 80 completed miles of the planned 120-mile land trail between Frackville and Philadelphia.
The Trail also connects three National Parks within the Schuylkill River Heritage Area.
SRG works with over 140 partners to achieve its vision of the Schuylkill River Watershed as a thriving and
economically revitalized region, whose residents and visitors understand, value and are fully committed
to the stewardship of the river and its heritage.
Founded in 1974 as the Schuylkill River Greenway Association, the organization focused on the
preservation of the riverfront in Berks and Schuylkill Counties. SRG has grown in its mission and
geographic scope over the years, and today is a non-profit organization guided by a Board of Directors
and supported by a staff of nine. SRG is supported in executing its work through federal (NPS) and state
(DCNR) budget appropriations and through grants and donations from foundations, corporations and
individuals committed to advancing SRG’s mission.
The regional economic benefits from SRG’s work are real and significant. The findings of a recent
comprehensive economic impact study conducted by Tripp Umbach were impressive: the natural and
historical features of SRG generate $589.9 million in economic impact, support over 6,000 jobs, and
generate $37.7 million in tax revenue
