Milford Neck, Bombay, and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuges

Replanting Our Nation’s Forests


Forest Overview

Milford Neck, Bombay, and Prime Hook are three national wildlife refuges providing critical forest cover for migratory birds along the Delmarva Peninsula. During spring migration, passerine birds funnel through this area and rely on the forest cover for nesting and foraging before continuing their migration. And all of this leads to exceptional wildlife viewing in the refuges.

Milford Neck, Bombay, and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuges Needs Our Help

Limited forest cover on the Delmarva Peninsula is becoming increasingly problematic — particularly during spring migration. Work within these three refuges will create additional forest cover on the Delaware side of Delaware Bay, and the newly planted trees will provide nesting and foraging habitat to migratory birds of conservation concern in Delaware.


You can help repair damage to wildlife habitats. Read about our efforts in each and restore the awe-inspiring beauty of our state and national forests.
