We held Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, September 21 in Seaford. Thirty-eight volunteers removed 211 pounds of trash, preventing these items from polluting Williams Pond and the Nanticoke River. Thanks to 4-H and Seaford High School Key Club for lending a hand, and to the City of Seaford for providing lunch and Soroptimist Park pavilion.

– Do you want to learn how to be environmentally-friendly?
On Wednesday, October 23 at 5 pm, join the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance and our partners as we tour Cambridge on foot to show you all the river-friendly projects we are helping residents install on their property. Learn about all the projects we are doing around town and why the city is working hard to promote new stormwater management projects like these.
Join the community of residents that are interested in making Cambridge a more healthy and vibrant river town!
We hope to see you there!

On June 20, 2019, the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance released the 2018 Nanticoke River Report Card. The 2018 season proved challenging, with very heavy rainfall throughout the Nanticoke River watershed. Overall, the River (Upper Nanticoke and Lower Nanticoke regions) dropped to a C+, while the Creeks (Delaware Headwaters, Broad Creek, Marshyhope Creek, and Lower Creeks) held steady with a B-. Fishing Bay also scored a D+, same as in 2017.
Thanks to our 2018 program partners: Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Envirocorp Labs Inc., Chesapeake Monitoring Cooperative, Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, and University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Integration and Application Network. We’d also like to give a SUPER thanks to our Nanticoke Creekwatchers and private landowners who allow us to sample from their docks.
Read more about the season and what you can do to help improve the health of our river and creeks in the 2018 Nanticoke River Report Card. If you have questions or would like to become a Nanticoke Creekwatcher, contact Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator Beth Wasden.
Registration is now closed for this program. Join our mailing list to learn about our upcoming programs.
Thanks for your interest in the Wade In, which we held on June 20. The 2018 Nanticoke River Report Card is now available at our website.
