Delaware's Division of Fish & Wildlife has acquired 14 acres of woodlands and prime wildlife habitat in Sussex County.

The new wooded area will surround Wrights Creek off Ellis Mill Road near Laurel, and the addition to the Robert L. Graham Nanticoke Wildlife Area will be managed as wildlife habitat, and it will permanently preserve more than 2,500 feet of mature woodland buffer along Wrights Creek.

Funding for the property came from the Delaware Open Space Program and a private donation from the Chesapeake Conservancy, which is a conservation partner of the Division of Fish & Wildlife.
