Our Team

Delaware & Lehigh - Our Team

The people behind the mission

Our mission is to preserve the nationally significant historic pathway that carried coal and iron from Wilkes-Barre to Philadelphia. Together with the citizens of our communities, we have worked diligently to preserve and revitalize historic places and landmark towns along the Delaware and Lehigh canal, conserve green space for public use, document and interpret our heritage, celebrate our community and region, and create partnerships for long-term sustainability. That’s a tall order, but our team makes it possible.
