The meadows in this community-based arboretum provide a dynamic space for passive recreation and nature study.

This Quaker-based senior independent living and continuing care facility approached LWLA to both develop site-specific restoration strategies to address weed invasion and species diversity in meadows that had been established by others in the 1990s and to create a new meadow in a large drainage swale that runs through the center of the Lumberton campus.  As part of a unique collaboration, residents provided input for LWLA’s design and restoration work and volunteered to  install plants at this new meadow.  Set amidst the private residences, the publicly accessible meadows today are integral to the community’s preserved natural areas.
