The East Coast Greenway is a 3,000 mile biking and walking route linking major cities in the United States from Maine to Florida – and is, of course, located right in our Tri-State area.
Twenty-five million people are located within five miles of the route. Also known as the Greenway, it is in fifteen states plus the District of Columbia, including four-hundred and fifty communities. Key to our discussion on In Focus with host, Jennifer Lewis-Hall, is how local residents can use and enjoy the nation’s longest biking and walking route. But, also how the protected route represents a commitment to public health, environmental sustainability, economic development and civic engagement. Joining us from the East Coast Greenway is Daniel Paschall, Mid-Atlantic Coordinator. Lizzie Hessek also joins us from The Pennsylvania Environmental Council and is Program Manager of Trails & Recreation.
