Environmental Advisory Council - Recap of April Community Events

Our EAC members were keeping busy in April and making us proud. On April 15th, several EAC members and local volunteers participated in the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy (PWC)’s annual Stream Clean-up. Towamencin Township is part of the Perkiomen Watershed and the Towamencin Creek is a tributary of the Perkiomen Creek. The Stream Clean-up removes trash, tires, scrap metal, and other debris from the streams in the watershed. Our EAC members were pleasantly surprised how little trash was found in the target areas around Fischer’s Park, that they had time to head down Kriebel Road to clean-up by the new trail. Items collected:  10 full bags of trash, plus, a car hood, metal pole/stake, long PVC pipe, and a traffic cone

The Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) encourages Township residents to participate in the annual Stream Clean-up with many sites located in our area, including local parks with segments of Towamencin Creek running through them. It’s a great way to fulfill community hours, while helping the local watershed! Look out for information on volunteer opportunities next February for the 2024 Stream Clean-up.

On April 27, our EAC sponsored a Rain Garden Workshop at the Township’s Meeting Hall Building. The workshop was coordinated with the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy, where residents learned how rain gardens reduce stormwater runoff and filter pollutants, while exploring other stormwater management techniques to use at their property. The workshop included an in-depth discussion on rain garden construction and maintenance, then participants constructed a wildlife-friendly addition to their home landscape. This event included a discounted price of $10, which our EAC helped to subsidize with budgeted funds.

The rain garden plants used included:

  1. New York aster (Symphyotrichum novi-belgii)
  2. Swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata)
  3. Sweet flag (Acorus americanus)

Check out the EAC’s Towamencin Day table this Saturday. They will have a windsock craft, as well as, information on various environmental topics.
