The DEP has scheduled the public hearing for Wednesday, September 6at 6:30 at the Athens Township building on Herrick Ave, Athens Township. We need members, or even just people who enjoy the Greenway, to speak up and let DEP know that we do not want the variances granted. It can be a simple few sentences about opposing the variances and why. The main point that we need to get across is that we are not asking for anything special. We only want the established regulations that are already in place upheld for our public green space. But we need as many people as possible to speak. Our collective voice is louder than just a few people speaking. We ask that you please try to attend and speak. Please call Sue Williams at 570.888.3220 after 5 p.m. or email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get an idea of how many we can expect to come and help the Greenway.
About Us The Carantouan Greenway is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) Land Trust and environmental organization that is registered in both Pennsylvania and New York States. Officially formed in 1995, we are in our 20th year working to educate and connect our communities to their natural resources. We operate as a public steward in the Upper Susquehanna Watershed, focusing in Tioga and Chemung Counties in NY and Bradford County in PA. The Greenway provides a variety of educational and outreach programs for all ages, with an enthusiastic core group of Board Members and volunteers.
Programs Our programs include field trips with a trained naturalist so participants can learn about local birds, trees, wildflowers, geology, vernal pools, and other natural resources; opportunities for public outdoor enjoyment of a 50 acre nature reserve and other walking trails for hikers, birders, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts; public forums given by local and regional experts covering topics such as Marcellus Shale gas drilling and climate change; a traveling heron photo exhibit; presentations to local clubs, churches and other organizations on topics from “The 40th Anniversary of Earth Day” to “All About Bones”; community river and highway cleanups.
Partners We partner with diverse organizations to pursue common goals related to our natural resources, including developing river trails on both the Susquehanna and Chemung Rivers, promoting canoe/kayak float trips, and publishing news on timely environmental topics, all of which enhances our outreach.
Carantouan Greenway is a supporting member of the Land Trust Alliance
