River love

A common merganser paddles in the Delaware River.

December 22, 2011

The Delaware River is many things to many people, in addition to sustaining the abundant variety of flora and fauna that characterizes the Upper Delaware region. Named America’s Most Endangered River in 2010 by the American Rivers Organization and Pennsylvania’s River of the Year for 2011, the Delaware continues to elicit the passionate devotion of thousands who cherish its generous gifts. From sportsmen, recreationists and residents, to artists, writers and visitors, the Delaware has touched the spirits of people of all ages and from all walks of life.
It is said that we work to protect that which we love. Renew your commitment to this mighty waterway, its valuable tributaries and the land that defines its watershed by doing what you can during the coming year to care for this truly wonderful resource. From picking up trash to taking action on its behalf, we can continue to make a difference for the Delaware in 2012.
