Welcome to the Inland Bays Foundation

“WE the People” of Delaware’s Inland Bays Estuary came together in 2011 in order to “form a more perfect union” to protect the waters of our estuary and did declare and found the Inland Bays Foundation-

The mission of the Inland Bays Foundation (501c3 non- profit) is to return our Delaware Inland Bays waters to their once "fish able" and "swim able" state by removing all pollution sources from this estuary.

The Foundation Board is continuously advocating and when necessary litigating to make this happen. Here's a profile of the Board-

  • Executive at Exxon
  • Federal District Sales Manager- AT&T
  • George Bush's senior lobbyist while Director of the CIA and retired Major General
  • Merchant Marine Commander

The Inland Bays serve as a valuable recreational asset for residents and visitors, and as a diverse habitat for both terrestrial and aquatic life. We hope to educate the public on the importance of maintaining a healthy watershed in Sussex County Delaware protecting wildlife, water fowl and sandy beaches for us all.
