We need to protect the Delaware Water Gap

The Delaware Water Gap is a cherished landmark that gets nearly as many visitors each year as Yosemite and Yellowstone -- so now I'm urging you to protect it like those other two majestic parks.

From the fattest black bears to the tiniest ruby-throated hummingbirds, the Gap provides ideal habitat for some of the most iconic animals in the American Northeast. The Gap is home to more than 20 miles of the iconic Appalachian Trail -- the historic path ranging from Georgia to Maine. And on top of all that, millions of Americans, from New York City to Philadelphia, rely on the Delaware Water Gap for their drinking water.

The Delaware Water Gap is of tremendous importance, and millions come to appreciate it from across the country every year.

Now a movement is working to convince federal officials to designate the Delaware Water Gap as a national park. Sign our petition in support of this proposal today.
