The Susquehanna Riverlands, along Route 11 about seven miles north of Berwick, is operated by PPL in conjunction with its Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township. The preserve, encompassing 1,200 acres on both the east and west banks of the Susquehanna River, has been providing the residents of north central Pennsylvania with quality recreation, fishing and environmental education since 1980.
At our environmental preserves, PPL works to protect the land, care for endangered species and habitats, and provide public recreational facilities for people to learn about and enjoy nature’s beauty.
