Lambertville certified as Community Wildlife Habitat


The City of Lambertville has received recognition from the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat, the 125th community in the country and the fourth in New Jersey.

Mayor Julia Fahl accepted the NWF certificate at a celebratory event Sept. 21, and she thanked Lambertville Goes Wild for its two-year-plus efforts in achieving this milestone. She acknowledged the importance of volunteerism in everything the city does.

The award was presented by Sandra Meola, representing NWF and New Jersey Audubon.

As part of the Cavallo Park event, volunteers from Lambertville Goes Wild partnered with the Lambertville Recreation Commission to plant 700 native plants as a riparian buffer at the park. The planting was funded by a grant the Recreation Commission received from Lower Delaware Wild and Scenic River Management Council.

The next volunteer planting event is at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, at Cherry and North Union streets. Lambertville Goes Wild, Lambertville Environmental Commission, and Lambertville Recreation Commission are partnering to install a wildlife-friendly garden in the city’s newest park.
