September 29-October 1, 2017: Upstream Alliance led conservation leaders, traveling by kayak from Trenton, NJ to Philadelphia to Camden, NJ.  The group investigated the rivers’ health, conducted a mussel shell survey, seined for fish–caught over 50 juvenile shad, and observed a river well on the way to the Clean Water Act goals of “fishable and swimmable.”  We are clearly at a “tipping point” in re-connnecting people to this river, after a nearly 100 year period where public use was defined by pollution, where tomorrow it will be defined by clean water.  This weekend, we embraced the Delaware and Cooper rivers now safe for recreation and full of life.
