Delaware Center for the Inland Bays Phase II breaks ground at James Farm


OCEAN VIEW — The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays celebrated the groundbreaking of Phase II of improvements at the James Farm Ecological Preserve in Ocean View on June 12.

The James Farm Ecological Preserve, managed by the Center on behalf of Sussex County since 1998, is a 150-acre nature preserve located along the Indian River Bay. The Preserve is open to the public 365 days a year and serves as the hub of the Center’s environmental education programming. The Preserve saw over 33,000 visits last year and is a vital educational and recreational resource for visitors, students, and scientists alike.

Phase II of the James Farm Master Plan focuses on enhancing the Preserve’s infrastructure to better accommodate environmental education, restoration, research, and community recreation activities.
