French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust has preserved forever 19.7 acres in Charlestown Township, northern Chester County, through a conservation easement on property owned by Thomas and Marjorie Seibert. The Seibert Property is visible to the public from 400 feet of frontage along Pikeland Road, which is designated as a scenic road in the Charlestown Township Open Space Plan. The easement was funded by Charlestown Township.
The more than 8 acres of contiguous woodlands within the property will continue to provide habitat to numerous land and aquatic animals and perpetuate and foster the growth of a healthy and unfragmented forest or woodland.
The biologically diverse meadow and grassland habitat, including native species, will continue to provide nesting and denning sites for a variety of fauna, as well as cover and forage for species dependent on flowering and seed producing plants.
French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust is grateful for the Seibert’s generosity and for the opportunity to protect this biologically valuable and beautiful property.
