The Delaware River. You get your drinking water from it. You water your plants with it. You may even spend your weekends leisurely sailing on it. Now, it’s time to advocate for it. The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) is searching for this year’s team of volunteer Delaware River Ambassadors to spread information about and appreciation for one of Philly’s most indispensable natural resources. River Ambassadors will plan and lead educational events for the public, focusing on the river’s tidal portion from Trenton/Morrisville to Marcus Hook, and along the tidal portion of the Schuylkill River south of the Philadelphia Art Museum. The position also provides the opportunity to engage community members in river clean-ups, fishing derbies and other activities that promote awareness of the river’s ecological importance. All ambassadors will participate in an eight-week training program to gain valuable knowledge about the river and meet with expert guest speakers. Show some love to the river that fills your water bottle and apply by March 1.
