Dear Friends,
Please plan to join us at our Fall Partner Alliance Networking Reception on Thursday, November 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the historic Fairmount Water Works. This low-key event is all about getting to know our current partners and welcoming new ones. Don't miss it!

4 The Delaware
More than 15 million people in four states depend on the Delaware River for clean drinking water. It's the backbone of a strong recreation and tourism economy that provides jobs for our communities.

The Delaware River basin has rivers, creeks and streams that host a diverse array of wildlife – from bald eagles to bog turtles, brook trout to horseshoe crabs. The river has seen improvements over the last few decades, but its health is in jeopardy as federal environmental regulations are threatened.

It's up to us, the people who live in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Delaware – to stand up for this vital natural resource. Let's tell Governor Wolf that we're strong believers in clean water and support increased protection of the Delaware River.

Curtis Arboretum
We're so excited that Cheltenham citizens are coming out to support a friends group for this natural, historic asset. They need you! Lend a hand at the next workday on October 20 and sign up: curtisfriends@cheltenham-township.org . We look forward to continuing to be a partner in this critical effort and helping to protect and restore Rock Creek.

PS: Did you say: "I hear TTF needs a van?" It's true. Help us make this dream a reality. Watch for news about our #TTFDreamVan Campaign .
