Preserve’s Trails Open! Reservations are Preferred
We welcome both members and non-members to visit our trails inside the deer fencing every day from April - June. If you would like to purchase Preserve admission after the desired ticketing time has begun, please inquire about availability at the entrance gate. Regular adult tickets are $8. While online reservations are preferred, a limited number of tickets are now available for purchase directly at the gate without a reservation for $9—by credit card only. We do not accept cash at this time. Members are, as always, free.
Due to the additional work requirements necessitated by the pandemic for both our staff and volunteers, our gate does not open until 9 am.
Also note, the Preserve closes at 5 pm daily, at which time the gates will lock. The entrance gate closes at 4 pm allowing guests who arrive later in the day the opportunity to walk before the Preserve closes.

For the Birds During Spring Migration
May 3 - May 21, 7:30 - 9 am
For the first few weeks of May, the Preserve is opening its gates beginning at 7:30 am for birders during the spring migration. Our collection of native plant and habitat diversity provides both rich food and nesting resources for a variety of bird species. Members of the Preserve are able to enter free of charge and non-members can either purchase a one-day regular admission for $9, a seasonal membership which will be valid until May 21, for $15, or full membership at their chosen level. Tickets can be purchased in advance via credit card by calling our Visitor Center at 215.862.2924.
The entry gate will be closed prior to 9 am. Early visitors should drive in the opposite direction than usual, to the right, in order to meet an attendant at the exit gate; then proceed cautiously to the Visitor Center parking area.

For the safety of all concerned, while at the nursery everyone must wear a mask and practice social distancing. In addition, if for health reasons you would feel more comfortable with our curbside pickup option, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate your gift shop pickup.

COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan:
Maintain Social Distancing and Mask Up!
Please note, for safety reasons at all times visitors must practice social distancing—a minimum of 6 feet of separation from groups other than your own. To visit the Preserve, you must mask up! As ordered by Gov. Wolf, everyone must wear a mask outdoors whenever you are less than 6 feet from others. At the Preserve, this includes our parking lot, restrooms, plant sales area and anywhere on the trails where you may approach others who are not a part of your household. Wearing a mask is one of the best ways we can keep each other healthy. Thanks for doing your part!
