The inaugural Delaware River Fellows program began in 2017, where each center in the Alliance for Watershed Education hosted a Fellow for twelve weeks during the summer. This year, the program has doubled in size, with most Centers hosting two Fellows! The program aims to increase engagement and action toward protecting and restoring the Delaware River Watershed. Fellowship activities vary, but some involve leading guided trail hikes, working on a riverfront dock, and biking with a “Mobile Nature Center” to engage with visitors to environmental centers. Fellowships culminate in a Capstone Summit where each Fellow presents his or her research, findings, and experiences.
