Planning for the Future: Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge

The Service has completed a long-term conservation plan to guide wildlife conservation and public use programs at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware. The plan calls for restoring marshes on the refuge which have been lost due to sea level rise and storm surges, restoring former agricultural fields to forest, and expanding hunting and wildlife-related recreational opportunities. The plan is available for review for 30 days before final agency approval.
