George Mann Farm

Located in Manor Township, the George Mann farm project was the Alliance’s first agricultural related stream project. The LCWA worked with Rettew Associates, numerous volunteers and a number of funding sources. The project involved removing two dams, reshaping over 2,500 feet of stream banks, & installing fish & stormwater controls. Volunteers planted trees and shrubs the following spring.

Swarr Run Project

The Alliance assisted the Lancaster County Conservation District (LCCD) with the Swarr Run restoration project in East Hempfield Township. Over 650 trees were planted to create another riparian buffer area and to compliment the streambank stabilization and stream fencing initiated by the LCCD.
