Myrick Conservation Center Visitation

Throughout the year, the Myrick Conservation Center is open (to humans and dogs!) seven days a week from sunrise to dusk. However, June 21-August 13, BRC hosts our annual summer camp. During this time, the property will be closed to visitors Monday -Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. For more information about visiting, please see our Myrick Conservation Center page. 

Spotted Lanternfly Management Webinar

BRC was pleased to partner with Brian O’Neil at Weeds, Inc. to offer a Spotted Lanternfly Workshop on May 11.  Visit our YouTube channel to view a recording of the workshop covering methods for managing this invasive insect and it’s preferred host tree the Tree of Heaven (Alianthus).  You can also view a .pdf of the presentation here. We’d like thank E. Kneale Dockstader Foundation for funding this program.

Keystone 10 Million Trees

BRC is pleased to join the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership in an ambitious endeavor to plant 10 million trees throughout Pennsylvania by 2025. We’re partnering with the Chester County Conservation District to distribute trees to Chester County landowners. Planting trees and shrubs adjacent to streams (the riparian corridor) helps to improve water quality by stabilizing eroding stream banks, provide shade for cooler water temperatures, provide leaf litter and organic debris for aquatic life and to filter nutrients from entering streams. BRC will receive trees annually to plant along past and current stream restoration projects. To learn more about a fall tree distribution contact the Chester County Conservation District.

Get ready for summer!
