The Delaware River provides over 15 million people with clean drinking water. Too many of those 15 million don’t realize how heavily they rely on it.

So, a network of environmental education centers are doing something about it.

For the next six weeks, folks in the region can attend a series of 30 interactive events up, down, in and along the Delaware River, from the Poconos down to Delaware. Events in the series — called River Days — seek to educate residents on how their everyday actions impact the quality of the water they depend on.

River Days is funded by the William Penn Foundation in partnership with Cooper’s Ferry Partnership and 23 environmental education centers hailing from across the region. The series kicks off today, Sept. 14, with an event at the Seaport Museum, featuring a handful of representatives from the City of Philadelphia.

Learn more about River Days and the events it has to offer on the series’ Facebook page.
