Get to know your watershed!  The Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River is comprised of 23 environmental education centers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. The Delaware River is the longest undammed river east of the Mississippi, and its watershed stretches all the way into upstate New York, providing clean drinking water for more than 15 million people – that’s nearly 5% of the entire United States’ population! The Delaware River watershed provides important ecological habitats to a multitude of species, and provides recreation for cyclists, hikers, paddlers and other outdoor enthusiasts.  

Explore. Enjoy. Engage. The 23 education centers in the Alliance share a mission to collectively increase and enhance constituent appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of the Delaware River watershed.

 

We Stand With You.

The Alliance for Watershed Education is comprised of a dedicated and passionate group of educators and conservationists, committed to fostering a safer place to live, and to leaving the world better than we found it. This includes socially responsible practices toward a healthier natural environment, especially for those who have been subjugated and oppressed for far too long. AWE has taken steps to provide space for dialogue on this issue among our member centers, Watershed Fellows, and stakeholders to strengthen and grow our work in this area; as such, the Alliance and its art team have written statements of solidarity to stand with communities that have been oppressed.

The Fellowship Program

Each center in the Alliance hosts one or two Fellows for twelve weeks during the summer. The program aims to increase engagement and action toward protecting and restoring the Delaware River watershed. Fellows may engage with visitors to environmental centers, lead research initiatives, work in the center and on the water, or guide a “Mobile Nature Center” to do trail engagement.
