The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control continues to focus on taking a proactive and preventative approach to keep communities and employees safe in the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, while maintaining operations and services as best as possible.
To encourage Delawareans to be active outdoors and to provide space for activity during the coronavirus period, no fees will be charged or passes required for entrance to Delaware State Parks, effective immediately until April 30.
Most Department-related events and programs, including tours, trainings and special events have been postponed. Specific information about the status of any Delaware State Parks event is available on the parks program calendar and the social media pages below.
The Department remains open. Many office-based employees are working from home and remote locations or relocating within offices to create distance among individuals. Adjustments are being made to procedures for parks personnel to reduce interactions among employees and with the public.
