Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River

National Park News

Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River's Summer Educational Programs wrap up this weekend with "Fish of the Upper Delaware" and "The Lenape." On Saturday, August 13th at 10:30am at the Ten Mile River Access join Park Ranger John Wells to discuss fishing on the Delaware River. Known as one of the premier tailwater fisheries on the East Coast, the Upper Delaware River provides fishermen with a wide choice of angling possibilities. Rich in fishing tradition and abundant in resources, the river and the landscape it flows through are constantly changing. Come and learn more about the fish in the river, the history of fishing on the Upper Delaware, as well as what's biting where and how to catch them.
On Sunday, August 14th at 2:00pm at the Zane Grey Museum join Park Ranger Zack Wentzel for a trip back in time. Before Europeans arrived on the Eastern seaboard the Lenape people were living in portions of the Upper Delaware River Valley. Abundant plant and wildlife near the river allowed the Lenape to thrive and prosper. Through artifacts and reproduction tools, clothing, and games this hands-on program will discuss the lifestyle of the Lenape and their ancestors from the Paleo-Indian period and to the Historic Period.
These programs are free and open to the general public. For more information or to obtain a list of this summer's education programs call Education Specialist Ingrid Peterec at 570-685-4871 or check out the park's Special Events page at: www.
