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
- 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.
