Delaware’s First National Park

Woodlawn Property in Delaware

The Conservation Fund purchased and protected 1,100 acres, known as the Woodlawn property, along the Brandywine River which was part of the area designated the First State National Monument in Delaware by the Obama Administration on March 25, 2013. Finally, more than 140 years after America’s first national park was created, all 50 states are represented in our park system.
