Kennett Township Pilot Land Stewardship Program for Barkingfield Park
Public Open House
The Brandywine Conservancy is working with Kennett Township on the Pilot Community Based Land Stewardship Program for the Barkingfield Park. Barkingfield Park and adjoining properties provide an excellent locale for an initial pilot project to demonstrate and document the concepts and process of an overall Township Plan. The Barkingfield Stewardship Plan will build upon the Concept Plan prepared by Thomas Comitta Associates. The Concept Plan delivers a vision of what the park will become in the future. The Stewardship Plan will provide guidance for how to establish/restore/enhance the envisioned natural areas over time. The scope of this project will include the Township municipal services area to the north. Owners of contiguous parcels will be invited to include their lands in the Stewardship Plan at no additional cost.
