Aqua Marooned!


Premiered Spring 2022

Aqua Marooned! is an interactive card game created for the Alliance for Watershed Education that stimulates dialogue between players and the natural world as they stroll along a designated route at one of AWE’s 23 centers. Aqua Marooned! playfully invites its participants to mine their own understanding of the Delaware River Watershed, learn more about the people and sites that advocate on its behalf, and examine past experiences with nature that have had meaningful impact on their lives in order to create a holistic, personal connection to the complex tapestry of water, land, flora and fauna that surround them.

Aqua Marooned! is one of the two anchoring art projects of Lenapehoking~Watershed: a place for water, art, and culture — an initiative of the Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River. To learn more, visit
