Throughout the month of May, Heritage Conservancy’s stewardship team will hold several native plantings across Bucks County. These tree and shrub plantings will help to strengthen stream banks, which will in turn prevent soil erosion and protect water quality. The first planting of the month is Wednesday at our Bellwood Preserve; the others are at Quakertown Swamp Preserve on Wednesday, May 19th, and at our Fuller/Pursell Nature Preserve on Thursday, May 27th. Register now using the form below.
