  • Milkweed Plantings

Monarch butterfly populations have declined over the past decade.  PARRC has been planting milkweed at appropriate locations to create habitat for their numbers to increase. 

  • Emerald Ash Borer

     Management

The Emerald Ash Borer has been decimating ash trees within the PARRC system.  PARRC members have been proactive in removing trees before colonies of borers become too large.

  • Spotted Lanternfly

     Management

The Pottstown area is in the hot zone of the Spotted Lanternfly plague.  While there are few natural predators to slow their destruction, PARRC has been notifying its residents of the mitigation measures within the quarantine area.
