Nanticoke Series

The 2018 Reclaim Our River Program (ROR) is designed to bring watershed events, workshops and recreational opportunities to the Nanticoke Watershed. This is the 5th year of ROR and we have lots of family oriented activities for all ages where we'll be having fun around Delaware's waterways and learning how to protect where we play. Click links to the left for the Calendar of Events and Series Guide.

This program provides important information on techniques of reducing nutrient and sediment pollution and other ways to improve water quality. The series also promotes public access to waterways and provides recreational opportunities as a way to connect us to our waterways and inspire us all to make improvements.

November 6, 2013 - Land Restoration Workshop: Share Your Story

Conservationists from across Delaware met to share their land restoration stories through site visits, presentations and discussions on best management practices, landowner stories, funding sources, and program benefits. The workshop was supported by DNREC's Division of Watershed Stewardship, Watershed Assessment and Management Section and the Delaware Coastal Training Program.

The morning session featured a driving tour of restoration projects throughout Kent County. Impacts and improvements to water quality were presented. Participants visited several restoration sites to view first-hand how the projects are accomplished and how they impact water quality. The afternoon was spent implementing and reviewing lessons learned through hands-on projects and discussions. The afternoon session included presentations and discussions highlighting features and benefits of various restoration programs and reviewed principles of site restoration.
