Delaware Center for the Inland Bays
Have you been looking for a unique place to volunteer or gain community service hours for school? Well, you are in luck! Delaware Center for the Inland Bays is hosting a Tree Planting in partnership with DNREC Fish & Wildlife. Join in on Friday, March 29th, and Saturday, March 30th from 10am-noon or 1pm-3pm to help preserve, protect and restore the Delaware Inland Bays.
The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays became a nonprofit organization in 1994 under the Inland Bays Watershed Enhancement Act. It has flourished for more than 20 years. Public participation and observation continue to play a tremendous role in preserving the watershed. Additionally, by participating in public outreach and education, the Delaware Center is able to develop and implement restoration projects, partake in scientific research, and continue to protect and preserve all inland bays.
The Delaware Center protects shellfish, fish, and wildlife through various recreational activities in and on the water. Not to mention, the most rewarding part of this operation is to control pollution in these waterways so that our wildlife can thrive in their natural habitat.
So, if you are interested in this great experience to help protect and preserve our wildlife by planting 3,500 seedlings in the Assawoman Wildlife Area Morris Tract, we are located at 37868 Double Bridges Road in Frankford, Delaware 19945. RSVP via Eventbrite.
Make sure to dress warmly in comfortable footwear, bring gloves, and bring a reusable water bottle. All tools will be provided.
If you are under the age of 18, a parent must be present during the time of the shift. We recommend carpooling due to limited parking.
Delaware Center for the Inland Bays is also hosting another planting the following weekend, April 6th. Find out more here!
