Environmental advocacy

We're speaking up - help make the voice for the environment even louder.

A long history of environmental advocacy

For over four decades, the Delaware Nature Society has worked aggressively, through a scientific, fact-based approach, to be a leading voice encouraging conservation and protection of our region's natural resources.

Successes achieved

We have worked to gain funding for farmland and open space preservation, protect threatened and endangered species such as the red knot, and advocate for sound, environmentally responsible energy policies. As the state affiliate for the National Wildlife Federation, the Delaware Nature Society addresses more than 50 environmental issues on the federal, state, and local level.

We need your help! Contribute your voice and act!

I Choose Clean Water Delaware Campaign

Clean Water: Delaware's Clear Choice

On March 4, 2015, Delaware Nature Society, along with our partners Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and Center for the Inland Bays, launched a statewide clean water campaign.

The Clean Water: Delaware's Clear Choice campaign will:

  • Build an alliance of Delaware stakeholders to support sustainable funding for clean water.
  • Support efforts to ensure that funding for clean water improvement projects places an emphasis on green infrastructure projects.
  • Lay critical groundwork to further educate and connect residents to their local waterways and empower them to take action to improve the quality of these waterways.

We believe that securing funding for clean water can lead to a cleaner environment, healthier crops and food sources, improved economy, and increased tourism. By securing support for clean water initiatives throughout the state, we are securing a better, stronger Delaware. Clean water is truly Delaware’s clear choice.

The campaign is funded by the William Penn Foundation .
