Take the See You
Welcome to ecoDelaware.com, your online gateway to the natural wonders of Delaware and its countless creeks, rivers, and estuaries.
EcoDelaware.com connects residents and travelers with outdoor places and activities in the First State. In this way, we hope to increase awareness, appreciation and, ultimately, environmental stewardship for the Delaware Estuary and similar river-to-sea watersheds.
So have a look around. There's a variety of destinations, events and ecotours around which you can plan your trip. We think you may be surprised. While small, Delaware has some world-class trails, outdoor festivals, and birding hot spots that never cease to amaze even the most well-traveled ecotourists.
Featured Great Places
Glasgow County Park may well be the crown jewel of New Castle County's park system. For one thing, it offers 250 acres -- more space than many state parks can claim. This land is home to "Bear Mountain," a massive sledding hill that may be the biggest around.
Featured Great Events
Lewes Polar Bear Plunge
The annual Polar Bear Plunge is perhaps the largest such event in all of Delaware. Every February, over 3,000 swimmers bring their bravado and their pledge money to Rehoboth Beach where, on the count of "three," they all plunge into the icy Atlantic.
