Morrisville Riverfront Preserve Needs Volunteers
In 2010, Morrisville Borough created the Morrisville Riverfront Preserve by preserving and undertaking restoration of 8.8 acres of land along the Delaware River. This waterfront spot will be maintained as a natural preserve to maximize ecological assets and provide public passive recreation. It is a wonderful place to walk, fish, bird watch or wile away some time.
The first two years were devoted to developing a management plan, treating the site with herbicides, and seeding with native plants and grasses. Since then we have planted 269 trees, 50 shrubs, 105 perennials, removed large amounts of dumped material, improved the southern entryway, started a milkweed patch for monarch butterflies, done preliminary trail work, and installed informational signage.
For 2014, funding has been secured for additional tree plantings, and access improvements are planned. There is still much to be done.
The Morrisville Environmental Advisory Council is seeking volunteers to help with projects at the Preserve:
Many hands make light work, and it always amazes us how much we can get done when everyone pitches in.
We are fortunate to have such an accessible and appealing riverfront in Morrisville. This is a great opportunity for residents to connect with the river, as well as help the environment and our Borough. Having some muscle will help with some projects, but all levels of ability are needed. Please help us continue the important progress we have made at the Morrisville Riverfront Preserve.
For more detailed information about the Preserve or to volunteer, please contact Debby Colgan at 609-954-5360 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
