Appalachian Audubon Society: Habitat Restoration
The Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) manages the municipal solid waste and recyclable materials from Lancaster County, as well as refuse for the Greater Harrisburg area. Their innovative approach to handling waste saves significant landfill capacity while creating clean, renewable energy (electricity). LCSWMA owns land that includes the Chestnut Grove Natural Area. Located in Manor Township, the 170-acre site comprises restored wetlands, grasslands and wildflower meadows, and forest. Join us to learn about the transformation of Chestnut Grove and the wildlife that call this free community nature preserve home.
