Well, the weather outside hasn’t been very wintery this year! Not that we’re complaining . . . Take advantage of this unseasonably warm weather and get out to enjoy your state parks! Visit a place you haven’t been before, whether it’s at Delaware Seashore, Fenwick Island, Holts Landing or Cape Henlopen State Park. If you’re looking for something to get you motivated and moving, check out our Delaware State Parks Trail Challenge, Great Parks Pursuit, or Adventure Races.

For the first time, the Indian River Life-Saving Station is open 6 days a week throughout the off season, from Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. -- stop by and take a tour of the Museum! I’m always shocked by how many locals either have no idea what the Life-Saving Station is, or they’ve driven by for years and never stopped. We also have a great schedule of nature, history and craft programs — truly something for everyone! Hope to see you at the park!
