About Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, Inc.

Partnership for the Delaware Estuary 1

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE) is an environmental nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the Delaware Estuary. The Delaware Estuary supplies clean drinking water for millions of people, and supports a booming industrial region; one that contributes $12 billion every year to our local economy. Our waterways and open spaces also provide plenty of free outdoor fun where you can hike the trails, fish the bay, watch wildlife, and paddle a creek!

Our organization was established in 1996 and is home to one of the 28 National Estuary Programs designated by Congress. We are the only organization that focuses on the tidal Delaware River, from the head of tide at Trenton to the mouth of the Bay at the Atlantic Ocean.

Our team of scientists and educators like to get muddy in the marshes and wet in the waterways. Each day, they make exciting new discoveries and produce compelling research about our creeks, rivers, and bay.

  • We work to prevent pollution, protect wetlands, and restore mussels and oysters.
  • We bring everyone to the table to solve the problems facing our communities.
  • We celebrate the Estuary and our partners at festivals, workshops, river cleanups, and other special events.

There is no marsh we will not explore and no depth to which we will not dive to increase awareness, understanding, and scientific knowledge of the Delaware River and Bay!
