The Delaware River Greenway Partnership, (DRGP), is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 that works to bring individuals, communities, businesses, recreational users, and all levels of government together to promote and protect a continuous corridor of natural and cultural resources along the Delaware River and its tributaries. In 2000, DRGP played a leading role in the successful campaign to include the Lower Delaware River in the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System.
Our strategic plan focuses our activities in three areas:
- River corridor protection
- Land and water trail development
- Stewardship and community involvement
Cleanups will take place both along the shore and in canoes and kayaks.
Care About PA's Tohickon Creek?
We are tracking a potential Tohickon Creek water quality downgrade. Longtime Wild & Scenic Steering Committee Member Val Sigstedt writes, “It is wrong, arbitrary, sudden, and with no scientific reason, to lower the Tohickon’s purity designation.”
