100th anniversary of Delaware’s Division of Fish and Wildlife

    Delaware officials will be in Wilmington today to celebrate 100 years of fish and wildlife preservation in the state.

    The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Fish & Wildlife turns the big 1-0-0 today with a ceremony at the Russell W. Peterson Urban Wildlife Refuge, DuPont Environmental Education Center.

    The event will take a look back over the next century and what the division has in store for the next 100 years. The 11 a.m. event includes the planting of the 100th tree in a group recently planted at the Peterson Refuge.
