Calling All Volunteers!
Do you enjoy meeting new people or working with children on crafts and games? Do you want to get outdoors and explore communities throughout the Delaware Estuary? Well, the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary has just the opportunity for you! We are looking for volunteers of all ages to work with us for a couple hours on weekends at community events across the region. To learn more, please contact Lisa Wool.
If you are more of an office volunteer, the PDE’s development department is looking for assistance with online research and a variety of mailings. This involves matching letters with envelopes, stuffing and sealing envelopes, and so on. To learn more contact Debbie Heaton.
Partnership for the Delaware Estuary
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is a nonprofit organization established in 1996 to take a leadership role in protecting and enhancing the Delaware Estuary, where fresh water from the Delaware River mixes with salt water from the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of 28 Congressionally designated National Estuary Programs throughout the coastal United States working to improve the environmental health of the nation's estuaries. Its staff works with partners in three states to increase awareness, understanding, and scientific knowledge about the Delaware Estuary, the region's most important cultural, economic, and recreational resource.
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, a National Estuary Program, leads science-based and collaborative efforts to improve the tidal Delaware River and Bay, which spans Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
