If you like kayaking, fishing, walking, biking or any other activity along the Delaware River, then become a Tidal Delaware River Ambassador! River Ambassadors are volunteer leaders who organize trips and cleanups, make presentations and other activities – whatever your interest and schedule! Through these activities, Ambassadors provide new opportunities for friends, colleagues and community members to experience the Tidal Delaware River, and educate people about the importance of the river as a natural resource.
Organized by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, Ambassadors undergo 8 weeks of training from regional leaders in Delaware River history, ecology, recreation, watersheds, human impacts, and policies/plans. The training sessions are also a great way to network with others and visit some unique places along the river – like Pennsbury Manor, Palmyra Cove Nature Park, Heinz Wildlife Refuge or Fort Mifflin.

The first “class” of Ambassadors were trained last year, and since then have organized a dozen events last summer including fishing derbies, clean ups, presentations, sailboat tours and more.
