Delaware River Watershed Initiative

Natural Lands is honored to be part of an unprecedented collaboration to protect and restore water quality in the Delaware River Watershed. Initiated by the William Penn Foundation, the DRWI brings together more than 50 leading nonprofits to accelerate conservation in eight regions of the Delaware River watershed.

Natural Lands is active in 6 of the 8 focus areas within the Delaware River Watershed, from New York state, to the Delaware Bayshore. We apply a wide variety of our skills – including open space protection, community planning, and restoration – to advance the Initiative’s goals and provide clean water to the more than 15 million people whose water supply comes from the watershed.
