A recipe for successful conservation in Delaware involves a variety of tools and approaches, but requires three ingredients: conservation-minded private landowners, focused and effective land management strategies and of course, science.
Over the years, The Conservancy has gained expertise in land conservation transactions and built partnerships that can help landowners protect wildlife habit, save their land for future generations, and even reduce landowners’ taxes.
In addition to getting their hands dirty at the Conservancy’s nature preserves, Stewardship staff and dedicated volunteers represent the Conservancy to landowners, neighbors, farmers, hunters, conservation partners and nature preserve visitors at all of the places we work to protect.
The Conservancy’s work on the ground – whether in Delaware’s interior forests or its coastal bays – is always led by cutting edge science. See how some of today’s most respected scientists inform the Conservancy’s horseshoe crab work in the Delaware Bay.
