Delaware Wild Lands


Enjoying Delaware’s great outdoors this summer? You might want to thank Delaware Wild Lands, the nonprofit that works to protect and restore the First State’s important natural areas by purchasing and managing strategic land parcels.

Since 1961, that protection has included 30,000 acres, particularly in the state’s coastal areas and Great Cypress Swamp. The organization owns and actively manages 20,000 of those acres to enhance biodiversity and support traditional land use, while 10,000 acres have been conveyed to the State of Delaware for public recreation and education.

Delaware Wild Lands also uses Sustainable Forestry Initiative-certified forestry practices to restore the ecological functions of the state’s forests while generating a long-term source of revenue for itself and contributing to the local economy.

Find out more information at their website.
