The Nanticoke River Watershed Conservancy is a citizen-based land conservation organization dedicated to preservation of the natural qualities of the watershed. Our objective is to promote protection and balanced use of the watershed's natural resources in both Delaware and Maryland. Most of our land protection is achieved through conservation easements, or written agreements between the landowner and our agency ensuring that a property will not be developed.
