“People protect what they love” – Jacques Cousteau

Riverways is a consortium of non-profit organizations working together to create connections between the local waterways and communities in the Philadelphia-Camden region.

With the support of the William Penn Foundation, the consortium works to increase safe access to the region’s on-water trail network and empower local youth to be catalysts for change within their communities while establishing greater awareness and use of the waterways in the Philadelphia-Camden region.


Our Mission: As a coalition of non-profit organizations engaged with the urban waterways of Philadelphia and Camden, we leverage shared resources to improve safe community access to our waterways and provide programming that inspires youth to be a catalyst for greater awareness, use and stewardship of this vital natural resource.

Our Vision: We envision a day when healthy waterways will connect our communities.
