Partners Conserve Land Along the Nanticoke

A partnership between the Chesapeake Conservancy and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) has led to the conservation of an important parcel of land along Wrights Creek in Sussex County, Delaware. Working together, these organizations have protected a 14-acre property that provides more than 2,500 feet of mature forested buffer for Wrights Creek, a freshwater tributary to the Nanticoke River. This property will become part of the Nanticoke Wildlife Area and connect two protected wildlife corridors that were previously separated by private ownership.
