Join us for the showing of two short documentaries.
Exploring Delaware’s Bayshore: Delaware Bayshore Forever Initiative (12 min.) From New Castle to Lewes, the state of Delaware borders Delaware Bay. This program travels the length of this Bayshore and profiles some of the unique natural habitats found there, as well some of the long-time residents who cherish and maintain it. The program also outlines the challenges facing this relatively undeveloped coastline and the effort being made by the Delaware Bayshore Partnership to ensure its unspoiled future.
The Price of Progress…The Promise of Protection: The St. Jones River (20 min.) During its 300-year history, the St. Jones Watershed has been one of the most important river systems in Delaware. First used by the Leni Lenape Indians, then by early colonists, the St. Jones River has been a river “highway” for hundreds of years, connecting Dover, the state capital, with Delaware Bay and the rest of the world. This video explores the watershed’s rich history and current non-profit, state and federal government protection efforts.
