“Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Native Tree Sale

~

Thank you for your interest in planting native trees on your property! Please fill out the form below or learn more by downloading our info packet.

~

Trees are younger and about 2-3 feet in height, though some species will be smaller.

Young trees may take longer to reach a height you consider “full-grown,” however, trees planted at a young age develop a better root system than trees replanted when they are older. This gives the younger trees a better chance of survival.

Thanks to 4-H and Seaford High School Key Club for lending a hand, and to the City of Seaford for providing lunch and Soroptimist Park pavilion.

2018 Nanticoke River Report Card

On June 20, 2019, the Nanticoke Watershed Alliance released the 2018 Nanticoke River Report Card. The 2018 season proved challenging, with very heavy rainfall throughout the Nanticoke River watershed. Overall, the River (Upper Nanticoke and Lower Nanticoke regions) dropped to a C+, while the Creeks (Delaware Headwaters, Broad Creek, Marshyhope Creek, and Lower Creeks) held steady with a B-. Fishing Bay also scored a D+, same as in 2017.

Thanks to our 2018 program partners: Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Envirocorp Labs Inc., Chesapeake Monitoring Cooperative, Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, and University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Integration and Application Network. We’d also like to give a SUPER thanks to our Nanticoke Creekwatchers and private landowners who allow us to sample from their docks.

Read more about the season and what you can do to help improve the health of our river and creeks in the 2018 Nanticoke River Report Card. If you have questions or would like to become a Nanticoke Creekwatcher, contact Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator Beth Wasden.
