Established in 1988 upon the appointment of the Delaware Riverkeeper, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) is a membership organization. DRN's professional staff and volunteers work throughout the entire Delaware River Watershed. We also work throughout the four states that comprise the Watershed -- including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and New York -- and at the federal level on the issues, actions, regulations, legislation, policies, programs and decisions that impact the health of our Delaware River Watershed waterways and our ability to protect and restore them for the benefit of all. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network champions the rights of our communities to a Delaware River and tributary streams that are free-flowing, clean, healthy, and abundant with a diversity of life.
