Adopt-a-Wetland Home

Video: Working for Wetlands (Length: 20 minutes) posted to the State of Delaware YouTube Channel.  Delaware's wetlands are some of the most unique and beautiful habitats on the Delmarva peninsula. This video introduces viewers to these special places, and the dedicated volunteers committed to protecting and preserving them.  The video highlights the Adopt-a-Wetland Program and several adopters.


Adopt-a-Wetland is a community based
environmental stewardship program
developed to heighten public awareness
of the many functions and intrinsic
values of wetlands to humans
and the natural world.
