Mispillion River & Cedar Creek Watershed Resources
The Mispillion River and Cedar Creek watersheds are home to some of the region’s most vital natural resources and last remaining large tracts of undisturbed land in Delaware. They are located within an internationally recognized flyway for migrating birds and one of the most productive horseshoe crab spawning areas in the world. The area is under pressure from the impacts of changing environmental conditions, which has increased the risk of flooding in Slaughter Beach and Milford.
WIIN in the News
A coalition of RASCL partners and stakeholders known as the Waterways Infrastructure and Investment Network (WIIN) was awarded grant funding to create a stakeholder-led investment strategy to benefit the local economies and coastal resilience of Slaughter Beach and the City of Milford.
Funding is provided by the National Coastal Resilience Fund through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Pew Charitable Trusts.
