Riparian Buffers for the Bushkill Creek Watershed


The Bushkill Streams Conservancy is an organization that works to protect the Bushkill Creek. As the township's eastern border 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.
