Gardens at Newlin Grist Mill

Newlin Grist Mill works hard to preserve and protect the park’s native flora and fauna.  Our garden project began in 2013 as a way to create additional habitat for often-overlooked wildlife and native pollinators like butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, bees, flies, beetles, and skippers! 

Each garden is full of plants native to southeastern Pennsylvania, and all provide important food and shelter for native pollinators.  In addition, Newlin Grist Mill uses the gardens to promote native pollinator conservation and education. 

We have also become a certified Monarch Waystation and participate in Monarch Watch’s Monarch tagging program to help study Monarch population migration! 

Each plant species blooms during different parts of the year, so be sure to stop by frequently to see the gardens change and grow!
