Defending the Delaware River Watershed

Delaware Riverkeeper Network uses a combination of strong science, community action, and legal expertise to defend the Delaware River, its tributaries, and communities. DRN is a leader in regional watershed issues with the ability to undertake technical monitoring and restoration studies and to implement cutting edge restoration projects. Solid information and impeccable documentation are our mainstays, often leading to successful on-the-ground improvements to tributary streams and adoption of watershed plans at the local and regional level that better protect the Delaware River.
