PEC Recruiting Tidal Delaware River Ambassadors

The PA Environmental Council is seeking volunteer Delaware River Ambassadors to organize trips, cleanups and make presentations in the tidal region of the Delaware River.
            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 PEC, Ambassadors undergo eight 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.
            For more information, visit PEC's Delaware River Ambassadors webpage.
