You may have heard that the Upper Providence Environmental Commission, in conjunction with local residents and partners, have planted over 5,200 trees this year around the Township! Earlier in the year, the Commission applied for and received a grant from Keystone 10 Million Trees, which provided the trees, critter guards, stakes, and shipping at no cost to the Township. Many of these trees can be seen gracing Ridley Creek and Scott Parks, where we have also recently replanted trees to repair the riparian buffer.
Interested in composting? Attend our September meeting to learn more about composting and local composting services in Upper Providence. Meetings held the third Thursday of every month.
The Upper Providence Environmental Commission will have an information booth at Community Day September 17th. Come chat with us about our ongoing projects to improve the township, how you can get involved - and pick up a free potted tree seedling to take home and plant!
