An es­tu­ary is a coastal body of wa­ter that is en­closed, but with free con­nec­tion to open sea.

A place for trans­it between rivers and the coast and the Delaware Es­tu­ary stretches from as far north as Trenton, NJ, to as far south as Lewes, DE. The Part­ner­ship for the Delaware Es­tu­ary ad­voc­ates for the pre­ser­va­tion of this es­tu­ary, one of the largest in the world.

On Sat­urday, Sept. 10, the Part­ner­ship for the Delaware Es­tu­ary, along with Phil­adelphia Wa­ter, will cel­eb­rate the im­port­ant por­tion of this es­tu­ary that flows through Phil­adelphia with its an­nu­al Pennsylvania Coast Day event.
