Bald Eagle at Great Cypress Swamp
Delaware Wild Lands is proud to have protected 31,600 acres of land throughout Delaware, 21,600 acres of which we now own, restore, and manage for Delaware’s wildlife and waterfowl habitat, freshwater and tidal wetlands, and upland and coastal forests. The remaining 10,000 acres was conveyed to the State of Delaware, including Trussum Pond; the Ted Harvey Wildlife Area/Logan Lane; Augustine Creek Wildlife Management Area, agricultural lands to the northeast of the Buena Vista Conference Center; and 700 acres of undeveloped shoreline and marsh at Angola Neck.
Today, residents and tourists alike benefit from Delaware Wild Lands’ land protection efforts. Canoeists, birders and outdoor enthusiasts marvel at the breath-taking beauty and bounty of these ecological treasures and farming, sustainable forestry, and responsible hunting remain a viable part of our local and regional economy.
