Take Action

The health of our river and streams depends on all of us

Across the Delaware Basin, homeowners, farmers, students, scientists and community leaders are working together to clean up streams, conserve forests and farms, and green our communities. You can help by volunteering for a stream cleanup, tree planting or citizen science project; creating a rain garden; landscaping with native plants; and being careful to use and dispose of harmful substances properly, including motor oil, road salt, fertilizer, paints and pesticides. To get involved with clean water efforts in your area, please contact your local Delaware River Watershed Initiative partner.
