The Lindsay Pettus Greenway is an outdoor venue designed to inspire Lancaster County's next generation of conservationists.

The trail is an outdoor learning environment designed to instill a love for nature in our youngest generation.  In partnership with Lancaster County School District, our very own Granny Greenway can offer guided field trips and outreach programs for elementary grade levels.


 Beautification clean-up events and nature walks are offered in collaboration with Katawba Valley Land Trust, Keep Lancaster County Beautiful, and the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation.


We partner with the Lancaster County Council of the Arts to set artistic standards and commission local artists to create delightful moments that inspire Greenway visitors to value our community's natural beauty.
