Past Volunteer Spotlights
A small tribe of river cleaner-uppers will tackle the Delaware River from Barryville south to Pond Eddy, N.Y., as part of the 27th Annual Kittatinny Canoe River Clean Up. They are Cassidy Reice, Lilia Kaczmarzyk, Braden Cays, Donna Cays, Adam Kaczmarzyk, Danuta Nowicka, Dominique Pappa and Becky Jo Baker. Video by Meg McGuire
Listen to some of the many volunteers who made both days of the 27th Annual Kittatinny Canoe Clean On and Under the Delaware River a great success – from as near as Sandyston, N.J. and as far away as Sitka, Alaska (yep, Alaska!). Video by Meg McGuire
Nancy Kreider, stream watcher
Nancy Kreider volunteers with the Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association, which was formed to understand the relationship between land and water after the Wissahickon Creek flooded the area. The stream flows for 23 miles through Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. As a stream watcher, Nancy monitors the health of the stream by water sampling and she has a particular "patch" that she keeps close watch over. As she says, "Volunteering is a great thing."

Paul Gamer, eagle aficionado
Paul Gamer is a volunteer for the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, Promised Land State Park in Pa., the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area and the Basha Kill Area Association in New York. It's his love of eagles that spurred his volunteer work, and his volunteer work with eagles broadened his environmental concern. He tells people that we have to look after the Delaware River. "If we don't, the eagles won't be here." See Paul's eagle photos in "Submit your photos," below. Video by Meg McGuire
