Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Fish and Wildlife | News | Date Posted: Wednesday, April 13, 2022



The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control invites the public to celebrate Earth Day 2022 by visiting a tidal salt marsh, one of the most amazing ecosystems on earth. DNREC’s Aquatic Resources Education Center will host a special “Marsh Madness” program of one-hour tours highlighting the tidal salt marsh at the Tony Florio Woodland Beach Wildlife Area near Smyrna, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, April 23.

Educators from the Aquatic Resources Education Center managed by the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife will provide tours, giving participants an up-close view of the salt marsh and some of the aquatic life found there. The salt marsh connects to the Delaware Bay through a network of tidal streams where visitors can watch fiddler crabs on the banks during low tide and sometimes see muskrats. This one-hour program is being offered at no charge to participants of all ages.

Pre-registration is required. For more information, or to register, email pearlie.franklin@delaware.gov.
