National Park Service
The Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is a wonderful place for young people to expand their minds. The National Park Service offers several programs designed to educate and inspire children with the natural world they live in. During the summer children ages 9 - 13 can learn about the environment around them through the "Backyard Biology" program. For younger children the "River Readings" program explores nature through stories and crafts.
