Landis Homes Retirement Community Friends Of The Woods & Wetlands Group Receives Service Award In Lancaster

The Landis Homes Retirement Community Friends of the Woods and Wetlands environmental volunteers in Lancaster County recently received the LeadingAge PA’s 2018 Distinguished Service Award for Volunteers.  
The Volunteers Award recognizes individuals or groups who have enhanced the quality of life of seniors through volunteer work for the benefit of the residents, member organization and/or greater community.”
The group of about 25 volunteers are exemplary stewards of the land who are committed to ensuring the health of the ecosystems in their community through monitoring and advancing ecological diversity.
LandStudies designed and constructed the stream and floodplain restoration of Kurtz Run, which flows through the Landis Homes Retirement Community.
The project created natural areas for residents to enjoy while also providing many ecological and economic benefits to the community on a regional scale.
The group’s involvement not only helps to maximize the benefits of the project, but also promotes the mission and goals of Landis Homes as an example for a sustainable and thriving community that enhances the lives of its residents.
The group’s activities include re-establishing native species; controlling invasive species; studying environmental issues and making recommendations based on their findings. They encourage involvement from other residents at Landis Homes and provide environmental education to residents and the broader community.
The group actively participates in Healthy Watershed Green Infrastructure Tours guided by LandStudies, sharing their findings and expertise with a variety of community stakeholders.
LandStudies recognizes the group as an important player in the longevity of our floodplain restoration project and as a valuable asset to Landis Homes and the wider community.
Landis Homes Retirement Community is located at 1001 East Oregon Road in Lititz, Lancaster County.
