What's New at Bombay Hook
- Bombay Hook In the News - "Delaware Living", a magazine published by the Delaware Electric Cooperative, features articles showcasing Our Community. Their article includes a brief description of the Refuge and a number of photographs taken at BH. DEC headed the article "A Delaware Wonder". We couldn't agree with them more! Please enjoy Delaware Electric Cooperative's Bombay Hook article.
- Our Website - We are working to bring our website up to date and to provide new information. Some of the work is quick such as the link to our newsletter that appears below. Other work such as that done on the Web Links page under the Things to Do tab take time. The links in the first three sections of Web Links have been updated and new information provided. Please come back to our website to see what else we have added. Please contact the webmaster of this page with any suggestions you may have.
- Your Refuge - Your Bombay Hook pictures and stories belong here. Please send an email to our web master to learn more.
- Hit the trail: The Delaware Trail, a collection of more than 60 activities at over 40 statewide locations, ranging from the rolling hills of Delaware’s wooded north to its southern beaches and bays. Read about the trail locations, and how it works and how to get started.
- Be sure to read 50 Great (and Neat) Native Plants for Delaware Gardens, published by Quentin Schlieder of the Bombay Hook Garden Keepers. Use it as a reference when reading Quentin's articles in upcoming editions of the Friends' newsletter and as a resource to help you with your backyard planting.
