Join us to keep Merion Botanical Park clean and well maintained, or help with invasive plant control and forest restoration. For more information:
Native Forest Restoration
In the fall of 2017 the area behind the bridge was cleared of invasive plants. 130 native trees and shrubs were planted to take their place. Since then, we have cleared more invasives, expanded the restoration area, planted more native species and installed tree guards to protect from rabbit and deer damage.
The full restoration of the forest between the stream and the train tracks will take many years, committed volunteers and more funding to accomplish. Final goals: controlling invasive plants, creating a pleasant place for visitors and improving habitat for wildlife.
Please support this restoration effort.
Save Your Ashes Your membership dues protect 10 native ash trees from Emerald Ash Borer. Learn about this disease from EAB Awareness.
