The Morrisville Environmental Advisory Council (MEAC) was created by Borough Council in 1998. The purpose of the MEAC is to advise elected officials, other local government agencies, commissions and boards on matters dealing with the protection, conservation, management and use of natural resources, including air, land and water resources, located within the Borough’s boundaries. (Chapter 29, Borough Code). The MEAC has five members appointed by Borough Council and includes interested residents as Associate Members.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month, Lower Level of Borough Hall, 35 Union Street, at 7 pm. (Entry to the building from the police parking lot entrance only)

Ongoing EAC Projects
- Morrisville Riverfront Preserve Restoration: The MEAC is working on behalf of the Borough in coordinating the ongoing restoration efforts at this 8.8 acre naturalized riparian area. We have been successful in securing County and Federal grants, as well as donations, to fund the project. The MEAC has developed an informational brochure describing the Preserve and its value as natural lands preservation. Volunteers for stewardship events are always needed. The Preserve is located at Delmorr and Philadelphia Avenues.
- Annual Graystone Woods Cleanup: Every Spring volunteers are organized to remove debris and selected invasive plants from this six acre Woodland forest. Graystone has historical, geological, and ecological significance, and is preserved as a natural lands preservation site. Graystone Woods is located on Crown Street.
- Annual Riverfront Cleanup: Each Spring, volunteers participate with the MEAC at the Morrisville Riverfront Preserve, located at Delmorr and Philadelphia Avenues.
