2015 Delaware Wetland Management Plan
Delaware is a state rich with wetlands that vary from forested vernal ponds, to highly productive salt marshes, to unique Bald Cypress Swamps. As stewards of these great resources it is our responsibility to slow the loss of wetland acreage, improve the health of remaining wetlands and work together to better understand and share with others the value of wetlands.
The 2015 Delaware Wetland Management Plan is an update of the 2008 Delaware Wetland Conservation Strategy. The purpose is to serve as a guide for identifying wetland research, education, management and conservation needs over the next five years. Any program working in or around wetlands is encouraged to reference the action items listed within to generate and justify project ideas. Below is a summary of the goals for wetland programs across the State of Delaware. If you have any questions, please contact Alison.Rogerson@state.de.us.
