CAJO AC Mtg. 8-16 (105)As a designated Pennsylvania Heritage Area, Susquehanna Heritage shares the stories of the land. One way we share our unique stories is through programs rich in regional culture. Both the Zimmerman Center for Heritage and Columbia Crossing River Trails Center offer programs for visitors and residents alike.

Programs vary by site and take many forms: heritage lecture series; special programs showcasing our American Indian heritage; and programs featuring river wildlife, geology and special events for youth and families.
Check out our events calendar for current offerings.
