Project No. D02C39-001
The primary objective of the Larry Bostick and Ducks Unlimited sponsored 1 acre wetland project, in Subbasin 2 (the Lower Lehigh River Watershed) is to restore a retired corn field that was ditched and mounded by Natural Resources Conservation Service into a wet meadow which would provide habitat for waterfowl and improve water quality in Jordan Creek by intercepting, filtering and cleansing runoff from adjacent cultivated areas. The project is located on Larry Bostick's property in Lowhill Township, Lehigh County. (Slatedale, PA Quadrangle, N: 5.3 inches, W: 1.1 inches)
Project No. D02F09-001
Sponsored by Natural Lands Trust, the primary objective of the 1.69 acre wetland restoration in Subbasin 2 (the Neshaminy Creek Watershed) is to help restore the watershed by breaching a dam and draining a pond believed to be raising water temperature. The resulting wetlands will collect several springs on the property as well as surface runoff to aid in erosion control. The wetland will also provide habitat. The project is located on the Paunacussing Preserve in Buckingham Township, Bucks County. (Buckingham, PA Quadrangle, N: 19.0 inches, W: 11.6)
