Riparian Buffers for the Bushkill Creek Watershed (posted 06/12/13)
The Bushkill Streams Conservancy is an organization that works to protect the Bushkill Creek. As the township's eastern boarder this creek is a very important environmental resource in our township. Through the years this creek has also become an important recreation area with the Penn Pump Park and the bike/walking path that parallels the creek from the northern boarder with Tatamy to the south boarder with Easton and Wilson. The protection of the creek is very important and the Conservancy has developed a publication focusing on creating and maintaining riparian buffers along the creek. Click here to view their information.

Project (update 6/19/13) Spring flowers in bloom along the bike path near Fairview Park. Click here to see more about this phase of the Palmer Township Beautification Project.
Since May 2011, Dave Carr and his volunteers have made significant progress in making the bike path along Fairview Park and heading west look special. In the fall of 2011 Dave and volunteers from the Northampton County Master Gardeners planted 320 pounds of bulbs that will create a special look of the bike path in this Spring. These bulbs were donated by Netherland Bulb Company of Palmer Township and we thank them for helping to beautify Palmer. We also thank the Master Gardeners and Dave for their special work. Click here for more information on this phase of the project.
Since the Board gave Dave Carr the go ahead to begin the Beautification Project the look of the bike path is changing. When you are walking the path and you see a work crew please stop and tell them how much you appreciate what they are doing because they are Making a Difference. You can also make a difference by picking up any trash that you see and bringing it to the nearest trash container.
To see how you can be part of this very important project click here for more information (revised 6/19/13). The Supervisors thanked Mr. Carr for his years of keeping the southern section of the bike path clean and his interest and involvement in this project.
