Please save the date—Saturday November 5th from 9AM to Noon—for a tree planting event at Solebury’s Aquetong Springs Park. We will be planting 200 trees to restore the forest in the riparian corridor along the Aquetong Creek. The event will take place near the Kate Smith house, located within the park at 6390 Lower York Road (Rt. 202), New Hope PA 18938. The entrance to the parking area is just north of the Silvertail Lane entrance to Fox Run Preserve on the opposite side of Rt. 202. A sign will be posted with 6390 Lower York Road.

These trees are generously provided via a TreeVitalize grant from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. The township is partnering with the Bucks County Conservation District and the Aquetong Watershed Association to conduct the planting.
Aquetong Spring Park comprises 45 acres of land purchased by Solebury Township in 2009. In 2015, an obsolete dam was breached, allowing the Aquetong Creek to find its own path for the first time in 170 years. Solebury is engaging in a long term project to restore the creek and the surrounding forests while creating recreational trails and outdoor activities open to everyone.
Join us; registration will open at 8:45 AM on Saturday, November 5th. In the event of rain or inclement weather, the rain date will be Saturday November 12th. Please bring a shovel to help with the planting as well as appropriate footwear. We will provide instructions on how to plant trees and install deer protection properly. Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
Additional information will be posted on the Solebury Township website prior to the event. If you have questions, please call the Township at 215-297-5656.
