DRBC Staff Meets With A.J. Meerwald Crew

DRBC Communications Manager Clarke Rupert met with 10 crew members and shipboard volunteers of the Schooner A.J. Meerwald on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 along the Delaware River in Burlington, N.J. He provided an overview of the Delaware River Basin to assist them in their educational efforts over the coming months. He also discussed the DRBC and how the commission works to protect water resources throughout the watershed.

The A.J. Meerwald, a restored oyster dredging schooner, is New Jersey's official tall ship whose home port is in Bivalve, Commercial Township. She is used by the Bayshore Center at Bivalve for onboard educational programs in the Delaware Bay near Bivalve, and at other ports in the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware region.

The Bayshore Center at Bivalve offers an assortment of educational and public sails as well as summer youth camps. Additional information, including the public sail schedule, is available on its web site.
