In conjunction with several local organizations, in 2008, Masonic Village at Elizabethtown restored a portion of the Conoy Creek located along its property with the assistance of a $413,000 Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Growing Greener II grant and $150,000 in self-funding. The project removed centuries of nutrient-laden sediments and restored 3,200 feet of the creek’s floodplain. Professors and scientists from Franklin & Marshall College and Johns Hopkins University participated in the restoration, including the reconstruction of the wetland environment that existed between 300 and 5,000 years ago.
