Caln Meadow Park Phase I
Expectations - our meadow plants will take a couple of years to establish - different species germinate at different times (the first year will look pretty bad!). Once the meadow is established, we plan to open the space up to the public for walking, wildlife watching, picnicking, etc.
Caln Township Parks and Recreation along with PennState Extension Master Watershed Stewards and Master Gardeners has launched the first phase of a Native Pollinator Meadow conversion project on township property. With guidance from the PA DCNR and Chester County Conservation District, our goal is to replace a large parcel township-owned turf grass with environmentally beneficial native meadow species. This page aims to report on our progress as well as provide information for those interested creating their own meadows, big and small.
