The Delaware & Lehigh Trail National Heritage Corridor and Weidenhammer Creative are pleased to announce the launch of three microsites. The Delaware & Lehigh Heritage Corridor is both a diverse, multi-faceted organization, and a multi-use trail spanning 165 miles from the mountains of northeast Pennsylvania through the Lehigh Valley and Bucks County.
The new Delaware & Lehigh microsites cover three specific areas of interests related to the organization; Landmark Towns, Lehigh Valley Greenways, and the National Canal Museum. The Landmark Towns and LV Greenways sites are improvements upon their existing internet presence, but the Greenways site is an entirely new design. All three sites feature increased interactivity and functionality, as well as new design elements.
“We had already firmly established the website for the Delaware & Lehigh trail and the Heritage Half Marathon. These newly developed microsites fit into the existing site in a way in which they can share information in the future. This is beneficial for an administrator who may need to make changes across multiple sites in the future,” said Devon Beck, Web Development Manager at Weidenhammer Creative.
The Landmark Towns website features community events calendars and attraction lists for each town. This showcases the unique character of each of the towns along the trail. The site featuring the National Canal Museum was given a visual upgrade, creating more impact and a more streamlined aesthetic. The Lehigh Valley Greenways site features a high level of interactivity and easily accessible resources. The map is fully interactive and allows users to search for areas where mini-grants have been applied by specific filters including category and the year in which the grant was applied. Communities looking to apply for mini-grants now have a designated place to apply online.
“The Steering Committee is excited to see the new websites unfold,” says Pam Coleman, of the Delaware & Lehigh Trail. “With day trip ideas, community events, and heritage areas, the new websites provide visitors with a wealth of ideas.”
