Would you like to save a life? How about protecting the drinking water for 17 million people? Do you want to share your love for the bald eagles? How about spending your day paddling on the river? Do you enjoy talking to people and sharing stories and information? What about graphic design and exhibitry? If any of these sound exciting to you why not join the volunteer team at Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
