Welcome to Delaware’s Inland Bays





The Rehoboth, Indian River, and Little Assawoman Bays lie just behind a narrow spit of land in sight of the Atlantic Ocean. Our mission is to preserve, protect and restore Delaware’s Inland Bays and their watershed.

Saying good morning from the northside Indian River Inlet with a sunrise and some peeps. (Peeps = little sandpipers, in birder speak).

Our staff spent much of last week at the Hyatt Place in Dewey Beach while hosting a conference. High water is seen here lapping at the new boardwalk and deck and in the background at the neighboring Rusty Rudder.

Coastal storms and sea level rise have a number of impacts on our communities and waterways. Tidal floods scour pollution from low-lying lands bringing it back to waterways as the tide recedes. Wastewater, roads, urban areas, erosion, and trash all contribute. We all need to adapt to more frequent flooding by keeping homes and wastes away from the waters we all share.

The Center hosted the annual Association for National Estuary Programs Fall Technical Transfer last week! We welcomed staff from almost all the 27 other National Estuary Programs to southern Delaware for technical transfer sessions, an educational boat tour (with a spectacular sunset!) and some hands on field trips.
