Wildlife advisory council to meet March 29 in Dover
Alternate approach to proposed conservation access pass to be considered  

DOVER (March 23, 2016) – The Delaware Advisory Council on Wildlife and Freshwater Fish will consider an alternate approach to the proposed conservation access pass that will be presented by DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife at the council’s next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 29 at DNREC’s Richardson & Robbins Building auditorium, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901. The previously proposed conservation access pass approach was developed with extensive public and council input to establish a fee for accessing state wildlife areas.

Agenda items include:

  • Approval of minutes
  • Migratory game bird seasons review and approval (for 2016/2017 season)
  • Future council meeting schedule – date and time
  • Tundra swan hunting (season consideration)
  • Bobwhite quail season extension (of existing hunting season)
  • Proposed conservation access pass – alternate approach
  • Division of Fish & Wildlife director’s update

In January, the Division of Fish & Wildlife held a series of public workshops on wildlife program services and associated revenues that included discussion of increasing hunting and trapping license fees and establishing a conservation access pass and associated fee for admission to state wildlife areas. At its January meeting, the wildlife advisory council considered and approved these changes. Any license fee increases or new fees require approval of the Delaware General Assembly before becoming effective.

For more information, please contact the Wildlife Section at 302-739-9912.
