DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife asking public to report dumping, vandalism at Nanticoke Wildlife Area

Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Fish and Wildlife | Date Posted: Monday, June 25, 2018



LAUREL – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife needs help from the public to stop dumping and vandalism at the Robert L. Graham Nanticoke Wildlife Area near Laurel, notably at an unpaved crossroad connecting Phillips Landing Road with Sharptown Road. Past dumping and vandalism resulted in closure of this road.

Recently, the 4,415-acre Nanticoke Wildlife Area has been plagued by an array of illegal activity, including: dumping trash, furniture, appliances, scrap tires, and yard waste; damaging access roads with vehicles; and destroying access gates within the wildlife area.

While Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police monitor the Nanticoke Wildlife Area closely, the public can help conserve and reduce damage to public wildlife areas by reporting suspicious or illegal activity to Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police at 302-739-4580 or 800-523-3336.
