Columbia Crossing Ready to Launch for 2016 Season!
The Columbia Crossing River Trails Center at Columbia River Park will re-open to the public on Wednesday, March 16th under the management of Susquehanna Heritage, a regional non-profit group working to make the Susquehanna a national destination for heritage and outdoor travelers. The Borough has a three-year agreement with Susquehanna Heritage to manage Columbia Crossing as a visitor information and education center focused on the river. The group also owns and manages the Zimmerman Center for Heritage, an 18th century historic site across the river at Long Level, also open to the public. Susquehanna Heritage recently announced the hiring of Hope Byers as the new Columbia Crossing Manager. A Columbia area native, Hope has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in American History and worked for numerous museums and historic sites. Hope is excited to bring her vision, skills and experience back to her hometown and lead Columbia Crossing into the 2016 season.
Columbia Crossing’s regular hours starting March 16th will be Wednesday-Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday Noon-4pm. Restrooms are open 7am-7pm every day. Expanded summer hours will start May 1st and continue through September. The Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Susquehanna Heritage to provide volunteers to help serve visitors at the center. To launch the 2016 season, Susquehanna Heritage will also be installing a special temporary exhibit of river art from the organization’s permanent collection at the Zimmerman Center. Starting later this Spring, Columbia Crossing will be available for rental by the public for meetings and events. More information will be available from Susquehanna Heritage after March 16th by calling 717-449-5607.
