Williams announces grant for Sadsbury Woods Preserve

HARRISBURG, Oct. 10 – Natural Lands is receiving a $105,900 grant to expand The Sadsbury Woods Preserve. The grant will be used to acquire approximately three acres along Compass Road in Sadsbury Township, state Rep. Dan Williams announced today.

Williams said the grant was awarded under the Community Conservation Partnership Program, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Sadsbury Woods Preserve is part of the largest remaining, unfragmented woodlands in Chester County. Sadsbury Woods Preserve has more than five miles of hiking trails and is a favorite spot among local bird watchers. It is managed by Natural Lands, a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization.

“This grant will help Sadsbury Woods keep more land unencumbered by development, allowing generations of Chester County residents to enjoy the beauty of natural woodlands,” Williams said.
