North American Land Trust (NALT) has opened two new trails at their Pennsylvania-based Brinton Run Preserve in Chadds Ford.

Flank Trail is a 0.14-mile wooded trail that meanders past the creek edge to the upland woods, built by summer intern Nino Tomlin. A short Auxiliary connects this trail to Militia Trail (0.29-mile). An Eagle Scout project to install a small picnic area is currently in progress. This trail connects to the new and larger Colonial Trail, which navigates the border of the Pollinator Meadow.

Colonial Trail is a 0.42-mile loop trail that envelopes the growing pollinator garden and includes a scenic view down and across the preserve. NALT acknowledged the Bee and Butterfly Habitat Fund and the Monarch Joint Venture (MJV), for supplying them with milkweed plugs and pollinator seed mixes to help this meadow grow.
