Wye Island Natural Resource Management Area
Photo Tour   
Located in the tidal recesses of the Chesapeake Bay between the Wye River and the Wye East River, Wye Island Natural Resource Management Area offers 2,800 acres of habitat for wintering waterfowl populations and other native wildlife. The area also boasts more than 30 miles of shoreline that park officials fight to protect from erosion.

This Eastern Shore island's flat topography means easy access to a variety of trails that provide glimpses of endangered species such as the Delmarva Fox Squirrel. The island also offers quiet coves where boaters frequently drop anchor for a night or weekend.

Hours: Wye Island is open from sunrise to sunset every day of the year.
Fees: There are no fees to visit Wye Island Natural Resource Management Area. Call the Wye Island office for fees to use the conference lodge or outdoor pavilion.
