When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

DuPont Environmental Education Center (DEEC)

The Delaware Nature Society operates the DuPont Environmental Education Center in Wilmington, showcasing where the city, river, and marsh meet. The Center, owned by the Riverfront Development Corporation, is on the edge of the 212-acre Russell W. Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge that adjoins the tidal Christina River, which is home to many species of amphibians, birds, mammals, fish, reptiles and native plants.

My friends and I took a trip here and spent a few hours touring the vast property, walking the boardwalk, learning about indigenous wildlife,  exploring the man-made labyrinth with owl statues and branches, and climbing on everything like we were kids again; it was awesome.  Relaxing, fascinating & inspiring.  I highly recommend taking a day trip here.  They also offer Twilight Yoga…gem.
