Who We Are
Delaware Wild Lands was founded in 1961. We are the largest not-for-profit, non-governmental landowner in Delaware, with significant holdings in all three counties.
We protect and restore Delaware’s important natural areas by purchasing strategic parcels of land. Traditional uses of land, such as hunting, farming, and forestry are integral to our management regime and maintained as important aspects of Delaware’s economy and cultural heritage.
Our organization has played a pivotal role in the permanent protection of more than 31,800 acres of land throughout Delmarva. Today we own and actively manage more than 21,800 acres to ensure clean air, pure water, vibrant wildlife habitat, and healthy farms and forests.
