WWW: Mineral Hill Conservation Analysis
With funding from Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Middletown Township, Natural Lands Trust, and Elwyn, Inc., Delaware County Council acquired the 46 acre wooded tract along Ridley Creek known as “Mineral Hill”. Together with the Lavin Tract and Memorial Park, Mineral Hill completes a 100-acre open space buffer to protect Ridley Creek and the Media drinking water intake, while providing for passive recreation. These partners, as well as Middletown Township Land Conservancy, Penn Future, Schmid Associates, Cahill Associates, and CRC board member Judith Auten contributed to this successful outcome through their hard work and generosity.
