To inspire citizen action, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network provides citizens with the information, tools and training they need to make a difference for the River. Citizen participation is critical to ensuring protection and proper management of the Delaware River. Through our Awareness-to-Action program, we move citizens from burgeoning awareness to citizen action on behalf of local streams. We employ informative membership materials, publications, motivational and informative presentations, special topic workshops, hands-on training, and networking events. When you become part of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, you will enjoy opportunities to learn about watershed ecosystems, acquire skills that enable you to have a meaningful impact on environmental decision-making, and develop confidence in your abilities to apply these newly acquired skills to protect your local streams.
