Chester County is going green thanks to a hefty grant from the Department of Environmental Protection. The grants, which amount to $425,000, fund two projects for nature preservation and restoration, writes Holly Herman for Patch.  

Malvern will get $324,800 to restore Randolph Woods Nature Preserve. The improvements include new fencing, renovating the access drive, making sure it is ADA compliant, landscaping, and installing a pavilion, writes Herman.  

The Green Valleys Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania will get $100,344 for equestrian operations at the French Creek Watershed.  

This is part of the Growing Greener Fund which was signed into law in 1999. The DEP allocates these grant funds for watershed restoration and protection, abandoned oil and gas well projects, and abandoned mine reclamation.
