  • Beginning March 28, the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife will be installing gates and closing an unpaved cross road connecting Phillips Landing Road with Sharptown Road through the Robert L. Graham Nanticoke Wildlife Area near Laurel.
    State officials said the area continues to attract illegal activity including trash dumping and vandalism despite increased signage and notification, as well as increased law enforcement presence. Officials said the area has been plagued by a variety of offenses including dumping trash, furniture, appliances, scrap tires and yard waste; damaging access roads with vehicles; smashing access gates; spray painting graffiti on wildlife area signs; and damaging the John Smith monument at Phillips Landing.
    Fish and Wildlife Enforcement agents will continue to monitor the area closely. For more information, call (302) 739-4580.
