Susquehanna National Heritage Area is a non-profit organization and Congressionally-designated coordinating entity for America’s 55th National Heritage Area. We collaborate with local, state and national partners to advance our vision for the Susquehanna National Heritage Area as a national destination for outdoor fun and cultural discovery. Our work focuses on placemaking that enhances the quality and appeal of our area’s special places and landscapes and tourism development that increases the visibility and readiness of our area as a visitor destination.
