The Burlington County Parks System has partnered with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to restore a 2 acre meadow filled with invasive species (phragmites, mugwort, and Chinese bush clover) into a native pollinator meadow at Long Bridge Park. In order to get rid of these stubborn and hard to remove invasive species, the park has undergone two burns, one on March 18th 2015 and the second on March 8th 2016. Watch this video to see the process. Stay tuned for more updates!
In 2014, the Burlington County Parks system embarked on a multi-year project in partnership with US Fish and Wildlife to convert a field full of invasive plant species to a pollinator meadow at Long Bridge Park in Hainesport, NJ. Get an in-depth look behind the scenes on the steps the Parks System underwent to complete this habitat restoration project. Filmed and edited by Naturalist Kate. Show times to come Fall 2018.
