The Lancaster County Conservancy has announced a new project to create an “Urban Forest Center” with its future location along the Little Conestoga Creek in East Hempfield Township.
While still in the exploration phase, this project will create an urban nature preserve with facilities connecting residents to the natural environment through recreation and creative learning. The Conservancy is asking the public to join in the design effort. Neighbors, organizations, institutions, and businesses will have the opportunity to share their vision for the type of programs offered at the center.
Ideas for input already include recreational and educational uses, history programs, the arts, sustainable buildings, native plants, wellness and many others. All Lancaster County residents are invited to attend the public meeting. Tuesday, Oct 25, 7-9pm, Manheim Township Public Library, 595 Granite Run Road.
