MIDDLETOWN, Del. (AP) - State officials are touting new milestones in the effort to protect Delaware’s bayshore region and promote the recreational opportunities it offers.

Gov. Jack Markell plans to join state and federal officials Friday to announce the preservation of a key property at Thousand Acre Marsh. They’ll also discuss the launch of a byway, the opening of a new trail and wildlife viewing platform and a new branding design.

The Delaware Bayshore Initiative promotes the bayshore as a conservation and recreation area.

The bayshore extends from the Delaware City area in New Castle County to Lewes in Sussex County. It includes wildlife habitats, natural areas and towns that have contributed to the heritage of Delaware’s fishing, crabbing and oyster industries.
