Importance of Native Plants:
The Township elected officials and staff have committed to using a minimum of 80 percent native plants on all properties owned or controlled by the Township, because as the resolution notes, there are a variety of environmental benefits to using native plants. Please consider using native plants whenever you are beginning landscaping improvements around your property! Here is the resolution that the Board of Commissioners passed: Native Plant Resolution
