Secretary Collin O’Mara Touts Morris Land
Purchase as Special to Bayshore Goals

Among the lush fields and tidal marshland of Delaware’s Bayshore east of Dover, DNREC Secretary Collin O’Mara, U.S. Senator Chris Coons, U.S. Congressman John Carney, Department of Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee and other Delaware officials and conservation partners were joined by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Deputy Director Steve Guertin to celebrate the purchase, protection and conservation of the Vance Morris Tract – nearly 750 acres of key coastal Bayshore lands bordering the Ted Harvey Conservation Area. Today’s event also highlighted the protection and restoration of more than 2,000 acres of wetlands and uplands on private property and public access areas statewide through the “Delaware’s Declining Wetlands Habitats” project. Both announcements were made possible by two $1 million grants to Delaware through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) and more than $4 million in public and private matching funds.
