The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County is keeping its preserves open and encouraging people to take advantage of the nature around them in these difficult times, writes Richard Gaw for the Chester County Press.
“Unless we hear from government authorities that we must close, TLC is keeping our preserves open, and promoting them as an outlet and resource for the public,” said TLC Managing Director Todd Pride.
The organization has suspended all of its group activities and educational programs through April 13. It is now pushing its content directly to area teachers and families “with ideas on how we can help them through this difficult time, including taking advantage of the 10 miles of trails we have with our five public preserves in the Kennett Township area,” said Pride.
TLC has been collaborating with several of its local peers, including the Brandywine Conservancy and Natural Lands. This should help ensure that people have a place to go to find a sense of peace and normalcy amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
