PNE Native Landside Meadow (not FlightTurf®)

Native Return® has been studying the economic, safety, and environmental benefits of replacing traditional turfgrass with lower-maintenance native meadow grass that deters problematic wildlife (like geese) outside of airport operations areas. As an initiative of the City of Philadelphia Division of Aviation’s (DOA) toward Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability, the Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE) has been the site of this research.
