Paunacussing Preserve | Sat, April 27, 2019, 10:00am - 11:30am
Pollinator habitats, pond conversions, and planting trees… our land stewards do it all! Preserve Manager Preston Wilson provides a behind-the-scenes peek at what it takes to manage Natural Lands’ 102-acre property in Buckingham Township. Learn firsthand about the long-term pollinator project, see the results of the extensive pond-to-wetland conversion, and enjoy the beauty of this Bucks County gem.
Paunacussing Preserve hosts a stunning mosaic of wetlands, woodlands, farm fields, and pollinator meadows. Once part of a larger 400-acre farm, Paunacussing has been an important thread in the agricultural fabric of the region for several hundred years. Before European settlers farmed the land, the site was home to Native Americans. Many arrowheads and artifacts have been found on the property, most notably the “Lenape Stone,” which is now a part of the collection of the Mercer Museum in Doylestown.
Dress for the season and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, for walking on uneven or wet terrain.
