Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat

Bird on sign

Our Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat at the corner of Barnett Avenue and Amsterdam Road is certified by MONARCHWATCH.ORG as WAYSTATION #19178 in support of the conservation and preservation of the beloved, endangered Monarch butterfly and it’s spectacular annual migration.

A Pollinator & Wildlife Habitat group has been formed to participate in Monarchwatch activities; and to further enhance, develop and maintain the Habitat. Church & community members of all ages who are interested in learning more about this group may contact Bob & Shelley Benchoff at 717-749-5202.


The milkweed and wildflower area has been enhanced with a new mulched and cultivated nectar plants garden between the entrances to the mowed walking path.
