Skip Navigation LinksDNREC : Admin : Delaware Wetlands : What do adopters do

 

 

We regret to inform you that – due to decreasing federal funding to the Aquatic Resources Education Program under which it operates - support for the Delaware Adopt-a-Wetland (AAW) Program has been suspended until further notice. That means that no new adoptions can be entertained and existing adopters will not be able to call on AAW support staff as provided in the past. Groups who wish may continue to carry on their good work in stewardship and monitoring of their respective adopted wetland sites (pending ongoing approval from landowners) through their own resources. For further information on this situation, please peruse the attached AAW status FAQS. Please tune into this website periodically for updates on any changes relevant to the future of the Adopt-a-Wetland program.

What do I do with my adopted site?
Activities carried out by Adopt-A-Wetland groups vary widely, depending on the interest and background of the adopters and the particular needs of the wetland site being cared for. Clean-ups, habitat enhancements for wildlife, wetland planting, invasive species removal, water quality testing, and biomonitoring are among the activities and projects undertaken.
