Travelda Farm Riparian Buffer – 2010

Funding: PA DEP Growing Greener Grant, $2,400
Chapter Matching Funds: $800

This riparian buffer planting, on the property of Travelda Farms equestrian facility on Old Bethlehem Rd. in Springfield Township, was completed in November, 2010.  Along the mainstem of Cooks Creek, the planting area was formerly maintained as lawn.  Volunteers from the chapter and the Cooks Creek Watershed Association planted 70 native trees, 20 native shrubs and 350 wildflower plugs.  Transforming the project site from lawn to a biologically diverse planting will enhance the water quality of Cooks Creek.

An interpretive sign explaining the benefits of riparian buffers was also placed at this site.  The sign is located at the downstream end of the project near the iron bridge at the intersection of Rt. 212 and Bridge Street.
