Dedication of Interpretive Panel at Long Level

Natural, Cultural and Historical Heritage Abounds

A trip on the Lower Susquehanna provides many opportunities to learn about the natural, cultural, and historical heritage of the region. Twenty-one interpretive exhibit panels have been created and installed at key access points to inform visitors about the region’s rich heritage. The panels cover a wide range of topics including the river potholes and deeps; the burning of the Columbia and Wrightsville covered bridge; ice-jams; the region’s first farmers; and the Underground Railroad.
