Upper Perkiomen High School - Schuylkill Action Students    

Fri May 9, 2014

Streambank Remediation Project on the Northwest Branch of the Perkiomen Creek at Heffner Lane in Upper Hanover Township. The stream is generally wooded in this area with a forest buffer but at this 125 foot location, a meadow stretches to the stream edge. We would like to plant a forest buffer to make the streamside forest continuous.

PHASE I: A riparian buffer was planted along the Perkiomen Creek, connecting two existing forested buffer areas along the creek.

PHASE II: A rain garden and meadow were enhanced with additional native plants and shrubs.
