Partnering for Pollinators

Ewing Township to partner with Mercer County to provide habitat for pollinators

Partners of PollinatorsEwing Township officials are excited to announce that a pilot program to convert municipal lawns to wildflower meadows to provide pollinator habitat is set to start this spring. This will be a joint initiative by the Mercer County Park Commission, the County Planning Department and Ewing Township.

Two Ewing sites, a half-acre of lawn at the Ewing Senior and Community Center and a total of one acre of lawn (Ewing will contribute one half and the County the other) at the Village on the Green are expected to be prepared and seeded with a native wildflower mix this spring. The meadows will need to be cut a few times during their initial growing season; thereafter; annual mows in the winter and invasive plant management are anticipated.

“Partnering with Mercer County to provide critically needed habitat for vanishing wildlife on Ewing public lands supports the efforts of the Township and its Green Team, which are working to promote wildlife through the National Wildlife Federation’s Community Wildlife Habitat Project to create healthier, greener and more wildlife-friendly residential and public spaces,” Ewing Mayor Bert Steinmann said. “And it balances our efforts to provide more beautiful open space for our residents with the needs of nature.”
