The Nanticoke Watershed Alliance invites you to our Designer Ditch Workshops! Learn how to make your local waterways healthier and improve wildlife habitat. We’ll talk about ditches, of course, and how you can participate in this brand new program, but also cover native plants and the pollinators who love them, Livable Lawns, and more! Plus, all participants will receive a free native plant to take home!

NWA will also select two ditches for demonstration projects; demonstration project locations must be in the Delaware portion of the Nanticoke River watershed (or one of its tributaries, such as Broad Creek and Deep Creek). If you’re uncertain of your watershed, please see

Choose one workshop when you register:
