What is Kennett Land + Trails?
We are a group of community members on a mission to protect the township's natural beauty.
Kennett Land and Trails is an initiative by the Township, including various organizations, that manage Kennett’s sidewalks, trails, and open spaces. KLT is committed to bring awareness and enhance the recreation and conservation of the community’s environmental resources for its residents to enjoy by working with private and non-profit organizations.
