The Susquehanna River Heartland Coalition for Environmental Studies (SRHCES), or River Group, promotes research and environmental education, improves water quality, and addresses other environmental concerns related to the Susquehanna River Watershed. Formed in 2004, the River Group includes Bloomsburg University, Bucknell University, Geisinger, Kings College, Lock Haven University, Lycoming College and Susquehanna University, as well as representatives from government agencies and community organizations such as Susquehanna Economic Development Association Council of Governments, Northcentral Pennsylvania Conservancy, The Forum for Pennsylvania's Heartland, Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Among other projects, Geisinger is working with the River Group to address the issue and growing problem of unused, overused and misused medications on health, the environment and society.
