Summit Sponsorships Available
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is reaching out to organizations interested in sponsoring its 2015 Delaware Estuary Science & Environmental Summit on January 25-28 in Cape May, New Jersey. The conference's agenda will focus on Balancing Progress and Protection: 10 Years of Science in Action. This will allow scientists, resource managers, consultants, educators, and outreach professionals to network and share information, despite working in different sectors and states. The 2013 summit, for example, attracted almost 300 attendees who took part in over 130 presentations. Please contact Debbie Heaton for more information.
Partnership for the Delaware Estuary
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is a nonprofit organization established in 1996 to take a leadership role in protecting and enhancing the Delaware Estuary, where fresh water from the Delaware River mixes with salt water from the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of 28 Congressionally designated National Estuary Programs throughout the coastal United States working to improve the environmental health of the nation's estuaries. Its staff works with partners in three states to increase awareness, understanding, and scientific knowledge about the Delaware Estuary, the region's most important cultural, economic, and recreational resource.
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, a National Estuary Program, leads science-based and collaborative efforts to improve the tidal Delaware River and Bay, which spans Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
