For more than 50 years, Delaware Wild Lands has been strategically protecting land in and around Taylors Bridge. Located in southern New Castle County near Townsend, this region represents some of the state’s most pristine upland and coastal resources and provides vital habitat for many species of birds and other wildlife.
Putting the puzzle together
The Taylors Bridge Roberts Farm is especially important because it connects to other key land and waters in this sensitive ecological region. Protection of the Roberts Farm completes a crucial piece in the larger conservation puzzle by creating more than 10,000 acres of contiguous wildlife habitat in one of the most rapidly developing areas of the state.
Now protected forever, this block of 10,000 acres at Taylors Bridge is comprised of 4,500 acres of land owned by Delaware Wild Lands and 5,500 acres of the state-owned Cedar Swamp Wildlife Area. This landscape also supports the health and vitality of other protected lands in the region including the Blackbird-Millington Corridor and the Blackbird Creek Reserve component of the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve (DNERR).
