    The Community Based Land Stewardship (CBLS) initiative is a unique program that aims to promote environmentally beneficial and sustainable land management practices in landscapes of all types, sizes and uses. From residential yards, to commercial and industrial sites, to undeveloped areas and parkland, CBLS seeks to maintain and improve the overall natural and developed spaces of Kennett Township. For centuries, the local land has been proudly managed for essential needs such as food production as well as aesthetic and recreational uses. These long-term factors contributed to the disturbance of soil, introduction of non-native plant species, and changes in the overall ecosystem balance that make comprehensive, coordinated and active stewardship necessary to restore and support the health of local environment.
     
    The benefits of stewardship include:
    • Protection of the quality and quantity of groundwater
    • Reduction of flooding and streambank erosion
    • Appropriate habitat for native wildlife and flora
    • Soil protection
    • Healthy, attractive lands surrounding our homes, work and recreation
