Friends of the Delaware Canal
About the Friends

he Friends of the Delaware Canal is an independent, non-profit organization working to restore, preserve, and improve the Delaware Canal and its surroundings. Our primary goals are to ensure that the Canal is fully-watered from Easton to Bristol and that the towpath trail is usable over its entire length. We embrace this mission in order to

  • sustain a unique link to our heritage
  • protect beautiful and diverse
    natural areas
  • provide educational and recreational opportunities
  • enable the Canal to serve as a community and economic asset.

Please visit us at our headquarters in the historic Locktender's House at Lock 11 in New Hope, PA.
