Spotted at Vincenti Preserve

Shocking to some, but it seems that I am not the only one who gets distracted by birds!!

TLC wants to say a big THANK YOU to Christina Gorman for emailing the fabulous photographs of the bald eagle that she took at the Vincenti Preserve.  Her son apparently noticed the eagle on the school bus and told his mom when he got dropped off at home.  They managed to spot the eagle and took these wonderful photographs.   If you aren't familiar with the Vincenti Preserve, you should be for the fabulous demonstration opportunities available to you and your family!!

    Donated to The Land Conservancy by the Vincenti Family in 2003, TLC’s Vincenti Preserve is an 11-acre public preserve located in south-central Kennett Township in Chester County, PA at the corners of Hillendale and Rosedale Road.  The preserve currently features a 2-acre mesic woodland restoration serving as a riparian buffer zone for the Burrows Run tributary of the Red Clay Creek, Delaware River Basin, surrounded by lowland and mesic woodlands.  The remaining majority of the property is planted to cool-season grasses, currently in hay production for our region’s mushroom farms. 

    TLC’s New Leaf EcoCenter at the Vincenti Preserve is a budding community ecology education and resource center.  The aim of TLC’s New Leaf EcoCenter is to serve our community by way of example and education as to the possibilities of a sustainable culture, wherein the well-being of the people, land and natural resources are met and sustained for future generations.  Made up of a collection of educational installations, including a composting demonstration garden and a 3-hive working apiary, our EcoCenter offers real-life examples and hands-on learning about sustainable alternatives to satisfy our needs while benefitting our environment, rather than taxing it. 

Thanks again to Christina for sending these along.  Please feel free to send us great photographs anytime you take them!!!!
