Management

The Lower Delaware River Management Plan provides a vision for the future of the river and context for future actions that emphasize local control and home rule. The heart of the vision is expressed in the six Management Goals that were crafted by the Lower Delaware Wild and Scenic River Task Force prior to national designation.

A cooperative approach to management is envisioned with the National Park Service and the existing Lower Delaware Wild & Scenic Management Committee (local and state governments, non-profits) assisting the existing institutions and authorities and local communities with the implementation of the plan and outreach to the public.
