Spring Is in the Air

Spring has officially arrived. The days are longer, the winds are warmer, and the world grows green once again. But, as always, the season of renewal begins tentatively—a whimsical game by Mother Nature to tease us with a beautiful sunny day only to drench us with cold, heavy rain the next. A bit dramatic, perhaps. Unpredictable, definitely. Riding the wave of this season means being ready for anything. And that we are.


Due to unforeseen circumstances in his work and personal life, Robin Ashby has made the difficult decision to leave both his positions as President and Board Member of the Marshallton Conservation Trust. We thank Robin for his service during his tenure and wish him and his family all the best in the future. Rest assured, during this transitional period, the Marshallton Conservation Trust's Executive Committee stands ready to offer leadership directives wherever necessary, ensuring the seamless continuation of our community projects and initiatives while we develop a comprehensive and sustainable leadership plan.


As Springtime blossoms, we hope to see you out and about in the Village at all of our favorite community events like the upcoming Souper Supper and Spring Meeting on Thursday, April 25th, the annual Marshallton United Methodist Church Plant and Flower Sale beginning on May 10th, and, of course, the Marshallton Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on May 26th.

Remembering Ed Hill

It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to former West Bradford Supervisor Ed Hill, who passed away recently. The Marshallton Conservation Trust is immensely grateful for his dedication and love for the Village and for all the work he did (in many capacities) throughout the entirety of his life. Marshallton has lost a stalwart of the community.

Conservation Update:

Stroud Preserve Project

The Marshallton Conservation Trust Board of Directors met with representatives from Natural Lands on March 6th to learn about the specifics of the proposed Stroud Preserve Project. This informal meeting established a dialogue between the organizations and an agreement that the Marshallton Conservation Trust would serve as a gateway for communicating progress updates with our Village community. Currently, there are three components to the Stroud Preserve Project: A replacement bridge, an expanded parking lot, and some form of water access to the Brandywine. Updates to this plan are currently being considered but will not be available for some months. We will continue to keep you informed as new information becomes available.

Save the Date:
