Meadowbrook Bird Sanctuary

Our Mission: To establish and maintain a neighborhood project at Revelation Road, Meadowbrook Road and Washington Lane whose purpose is to beautify and preserve the open space with trees, benches, bird houses and walking paths, as well as to educate through the use of identified native plantings.

Dear Neighbors: The Meadowbrook Bird Sanctuary was formed by concerned neighbors who wanted to restore the area to its natural state prior to the Township Sewer Project of 2001 - 2002.

Implementing A Plan: With the help of Rydal-Meadowbrook Civic Association, Abington Township Environmental Advisory Council and Abington Township, the property has evolved into a beautiful sanctuary that preserves this precious open space. Landscape architects volunteered to design a plan that would transform the area into a bird habitat with installation of an irrigation and water retention system, along with paths, feeders and plantings.

Progress to Date: Volunteers then planted over 30 trees, numerous flower beds and smaller plantings, strategically placed bird houses and benches for visitors to sit and enjoy this wonderful setting. Our efforts have been rewarded by receiving the prestigious Pennsylvania Horticultural Society 2003 Suburban Greening Award and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society 2004 Maintenance Award.We also received the Audubon Society Award in 2008, the Abington Township 2010 Robert Montgomery Award and the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Citation in Recognition of Preserving Open Space 2010. BUT OUR MISSION IS NOT COMPLETE! We need help to maintain with financial and physical participation by interested and concerned neighbors

April 2010 Newsletter

This is the last newsletter before the Spring outing, "Our Bloomers Are Showin'" May 1 (rain date May 2) between 2 and 4 PM so we're really going to turn up the heat and shout "COME OUT AND SEE OUR BLOOMERS".
It's an old-fashioned get together. Bring your dogs, kids, grandkids, Mom and Dad, your Mother-in-law, your Father-in-law, your next door neighbor, your next door neighbor's neighbor and anyone else who has a passion for life and all the good things it has to offer.
OK, you get the picture. We're just so proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time that we can't help sharing it all with you.

Here is Jessica's Point of View column:
Hey kids:
Sun is out. It is warm.
Come out for a fun day at Meadowbrook Bird Sanctuary.
Bring your parents.
Come out and play, eat cookies and drink lemonade at Jessica's Lemonade Stand at "Our Bloomers Are Showin'" (on May 1, rain date May 2) at 2 PM.
Johnathan and his brother did a super job of counting bird houses and I want to give them super special sticker prizes.
Kids! Everyone who counts bird houses will get a sticker!

Thanks Jessica. You have celebrity status. Can we have your autograph??
