In 2012, the D&L Trail, the cornerstone of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and the Lehigh Valley Greenway effort, drew 283,000 visitors who spent an estimated $19 million for activities related to the trail, according to a recent user survey.
The grants were awarded through DCNR's Community Conservation Partnerships Program that supports new recreational opportunities and conservation of natural resources, announced in December by Governor Corbett.
