Streamside / Riparian Trail

Welcome to the Keystone College Riparian Trail. The trail begins behind the Miller Library, and leads you on a streamside interpretive hike along side the south branch of the Tunkhannock Creek, into mature woods, meadows, and over a steep mountain ravine. The station-numbered guide will help you understand the natural resource functions of streamside, or riparian, ecology.  Maintaining water quality is one of the most important natural resource issues that communities face right here at home, as well as worldwide. You will learn first-hand the important interface between the management of land and how it impacts the water. Forestry, recreational, agricultural, and urban land uses are also observed during your trek.
