Blackiston Wildlife Area consists of two large land tracts totaling more than 2,200 acres of wilderness near Blackiston. Before your arrival, we recommend you consult the current schedule of hunting seasons. Or, if you're ever in doubt, simply wear hunters' orange or other bright colors. Also, please be advised that wildlife areas typically keep signage to a minimum, so a compass or GPS unit may be a wise thing to pack.

If you happen to see nutria in Blackiston Wildlife Area, please call DNREC right away at (302) 735-3600. These large, rodent-like animals are invasive and high destructive to wetlands.
