What to look for on Smart Talk Tuesday, January 14, 2014:
Next Monday, January 20, witf's StateImpact Pennsylvania project will hold a public forum entitled "The Susquehanna River watershed: healthy or at risk?" It's the second public gathering for StateImpact Pennsylvania, which reports on the fiscal and environmental impact of Pennsylvania's energy economy. The first was held in Philadelphia last month along with project partner WHYY and focused on the Delaware River watershed.
The Susquehanna starts in Cooperstown, New York, cuts through the heart of Pennsylvania and empties into the Chesapeake Bay. Since most of the 444 mile river is in Central Pennsylvania, it is the geographic characteristic that defines the region.
But it is more than that.
The Susquehanna River has played a major role in Central Pennsylvania's history, commerce, industry, tourism, and recreation and it still does.
Tuesday's Smart Talk kicks off a multimedia series of features on the Susquehanna and its watershed.
Joining us on the program are Susan Stranahan, author of the book Susquehanna: River of Dreams, Mark Platts, President of the Susquehanna Gateway Heritage Area, and Harry Campbell, Pennsylvania Executive Director, Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
