Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett on the launch of Envision the Susquehanna:
It is my pleasure to join with the Chesapeake Conservancy to recognize and support its Envision the Susquehanna initiative to protect and preserve the vitality of our river.
Pennsylvania is surrounded by natural beauty, from our scenic trails and state parks to our lush forests and waterways. The Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay are critical bodies of water that offer a plethora of benefits to our state: providing fresh drinking water; offering recreational opportunities for Pennsylvanians and tourists; and contributing to our economic prosperity and livelihood. The Conservancy’s Envision the Susquehanna initiative will allow our communities to preserve and enhance the river’s unique qualities and enjoy all that it has to offer. I commend the Chesapeake Conservancy and its partners for their steadfast dedication to engaging our communities to ensure the vitality of the Susquehanna River. It is my hope that residents of the Commonwealth will continue to be stewards of the Susquehanna River and protect our natural resources for generations to come.
As Governor, and on behalf of all Pennsylvanians, I am pleased to support the Chesapeake Conservancy’s Envision the Susquehanna initiative. Please accept my best wishes for continued success in the future.
