Flora and Fauna Resources

This list of web sites may help you identify living things that you find in and along the Delaware Canal.

If you have suggestions for additional web sites useful in making identifications, please let us know. As you can see, we’ve already received some great advice about bird sites.

In addition, the Park Species Inventory lists, prepared by Delaware Canal State Park educators,  can give you a head start on your search.
