More About Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust
The Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust serves as an 800-plus-acre preservation for what once was Eastern Montgomery County’s prevalent landscape: fields and fields of pristine prairie lands.
The Trust’s efforts of conservation lead its limited staff and hundreds of volunteers on a year-round mission to protect indigenous fauna and flora from invasive plant species and especially deer. For this reason, the miles of trails leading from one spectacular meadow to the next, have specific recreational purposes.
Visitors may stroll or hike along trails or ride their horses. Some trails reveal once powerful paper mills, now stone remnants, along the Pennypack Creek that pre-date the founding of the United States.
Also to further the Trust’s mission of conservation, several interactive programs are available to both members and the public.
