Crum creek in spring

Simultaneously recognizing the Crum Woods at Swarthmore College as a great natural resource and the many existing threats to its integrity as a functional ecosystem, the Crum Woods Stewardship Committee, on behalf of the entirety of Swarthmore College, has invested in the development of The Crum Woods Restoration and Stewardship Plan. The specific intention is to identify a clear and actionable pathway to re- storing the ecosystem functionality and resultant benefits to Swarthmore College and the larger community.
