Industrial heritage: the d&l organization recognizes the importance of preserving and revitalizing our natural and cultural assets while promoting the heritage of the region. Investment in the d&l national heritage corridor funds projects and sites within our nationally significant region which allows for cultural preservation and appreciation. The emrick center in easton serves as the d&l's headquarters and houses the national canal museum and one of america's last remaining mule-drawn canal boats. More than 100,000 students and adults immerse themselves in our heritage anually.

Nature & the environment: along the d&l trail, visitors experience a multitude of historic, cultural, and additional recreational offerings. Our website provides an interactive trail map that links users to various regional communities, heritage sites and attractions, including museums, places for wildlife viewing, and live music and theater. The d&l trail is the gateway that connects people with natural beauty and waterways. Our trail towns program helps prepare and market towns within the corridor as visitor destinations. Through acquisition and land protection easements, d&l national heritage corridor partners have preserved 4,173.5 acres since 2004.

Economic development: the 2017 tripp-umbach economic impact study showed that the d&l corridor generated 474.7 million in economic impact, supported 5,665 jobs, and generated 32.3 million in tax revenue. The significance of the corridor hinges on its role in the burgeoning 19th century american economy. With nearly half a billion dollars of impact, it is still significant today and our partners up and down the corridor contribute mightily to this figure. The d&l trail towns program builds visitation to corridor communities and has also spurred economic and community development, and increased quality of life for residents throughout the d&l national heritage corridor.
