Haverford Township Trail Volunteers
Make a difference in Haverford Township’s Parks and Trails
Calling all Volunteers! Haverford Township has over 17 miles of walking trails available to the public. This spring we have seen a 60-70% increase in our trail system; with some residents on the trails for the very first time. Enjoying the great outdoors has become the thing to do.
We need your help! The vegetation along the trails makes them attractive and provides habitat and food for pollinators, blocks noise pollution, and supports stream and soil health. Unfortunately, the parks and trails have become overrun by invasive plants which compete with our native species for space, sunlight, water, and nutrients, and harm our native wildlife.
Be a part of the Invasive Removal Project. A strategy for managing these invasive plants is to manually cut, pull, and/or treat them and then plant native species in their place. We need a large network of people (YOU!) constantly controlling these plants or they will continue to ravage our parks and trails. This fall, we will continue to remove unwanted plants and replace them with native species. The project requires minimal equipment and zero knowledge because our trained staff will work with you every step of the way.
Sign up now or email to help in the future. The feeling of community in Haverford Township has always been considerable. One of the reasons is we have many dedicated volunteers who give generously of their time and talent. We look forward to hearing from you! Email Jesse Hart ([email protected]).
You will be contacted prior to the event with information about what to bring and where to meet.
